Las Vegas, NV (February 20, 2022) – Three people were hospitalized, two with life-threatening injuries, after a crash that happened Sunday evening, February 20, near downtown Las Vegas.
Officers were dispatched to the intersection of Sahara Avenue and South Maryland Parkway after receiving reports of a multi-vehicle collision, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Brian Boxler said.
Three people were transported to a nearby hospital, with two suffering major, life-threatening injuries, Boxler added. Sahara Avenue remained closed in both directions while officers investigated.
No further details have been provided, however, and police are still investigating at this time.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families. We hope for their full recovery.
Serious Vehicle Accidents in Nevada
Nevada Department of Transportation data shows that nearly 55,000 reported car crashes statewide in one year alone, many of them resulting in serious injuries or even fatalities.
Officers with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department reported about 44% of total accidents throughout the Silver State. That means that nearly 22,500 crashes happened in the greater Las Vegas area alone. Broken down further, that’s about 61 accidents happening each day.
Unfortunately, these vehicle wrecks are a daily fact of life in Nevada. This is particularly true when it comes to the busy streets of Las Vegas, Reno, Carson City, and beyond. Even worse, victims and families are particularly vulnerable in the aftermath of these accidents.
After a serious car accident, victims typically face serious financial roadblocks on top of long-term physical issues and serious emotional trauma. When victims succumb to their injuries, their grieving family members must cope with expensive medical and funerary costs.
