Las Vegas, NV (December 25, 2021) – On Friday evening, December 24, a man and a woman both suffered serious injuries following a rollover crash involving a UTV in Northern Las Vegas.
As per the initial reports from the scene, officers responded to the area of Bruce Street and Ann Road at about 8:45 p.m. Police had received a dispatch describing a single-vehicle accident at the intersection.
Upon arrival, police discovered that the driver of a UTV, also known as an ATV, was riding with three passengers and failed to maintain control of the vehicle, causing the crash.
Paramedics rushed one victim, a woman in her 20s, to UMC in serious condition. One of her arms was later amputated at the hospital. A man was also taken to the hospital with serious but non-fatal injuries. Both the victims taken to a hospital were passengers on the utility vehicle.
Impairment is not suspected in the incident, but the driver of the UTV was detained on suspicion of reckless driving. No further details have been made available at this time.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
ATV Accidents in Nevada
Across the country, authorities report more than 130,000 injuries annually due to ATV accidents. Sadly, nearly 700 people are killed in these incidents every year, and approximately 30% of those killed in these wrecks each year are under the age of 16.
Moreover, those affected by ATV accidents often cope with financial difficulties, long-term physical issues, and emotional trauma. When victims die as a result of these incidents, their loved ones may be left in an unbelievably tough position.
Families must often endure exorbitant medical and funerary expenses on top of grieving their lost loved ones. From lifelong debilitation and disabilities for victims to severe trauma for those left behind when victims pass away, those affected are left to pick up the pieces.
Thankfully, if you’ve sustained injuries or lost a loved one in an ATV accident, you may have legal recourse.
