The serious vehicle wreck, which occurred at 8:45 a.m., blocked several lanes of southbound Interstate 15 near Exit 38 to Flamingo Road. Although medics were dispatched and appeared to evacuate all persons with injuries, authorities have not provided specifics regarding the injured victims or the circumstances that caused the incident.
LVMPD officers are still working to investigate the events leading up to the accident and have not released further information at this time.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families. We hope for their full recovery.
Commercial Semi-Truck Accidents in Nevada
Large commercial vehicles were involved in about 345,000 incidents throughout the country in just one year, according to the most current figures issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Even worse, according to the latest statistics collected by authorities nationwide, about 4,000 of these incidents resulted in fatalities, with an estimated 100,000 accidents involving tractor-trailers resulting in serious injuries overall. Unfortunately, these instances are all too common in Nevada. This is especially true in Las Vegas, Reno, Carson City, and other areas with congested streets and bustling freeways.
After a major vehicle accident, particularly one involving an oversized commercial vehicle, victims may face significant financial difficulties in addition to long-term health problems and major emotional anguish. And then victims succumb to the injuries they’ve sustained in these preventable wrecks, their bereaved families are left to deal with high medical and funerary costs, not to mention lost wages or loss of earning potential. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a truck accident caused by a negligent driver, you may be entitled to compensation.
