Las Vegas, NV (June 13, 2022) – On Monday morning, June 13, Las Vegas Metro Police Department officers were sent to investigate a collision involving a semi-truck driver that wounded at least one person.
The wreck happened on southbound US Highway 95 near Exit 65 to Russell Road at 11:50 a.m., obstructing numerous left lanes of traffic. The crash generated a significant traffic bottleneck that lasted almost an hour on the freeway. Medics and EMS units from Las Vegas were also sent to the area to assess the severity of the victims’ injuries.
However, neither LVMPD officers nor any other first responders on the scene have provided any details about the cause of the accident or the nature of the injuries sustained by those involved.

We wish everyone involved in today’s accident a speedy and full recovery.
18-Wheeler Truck Collisions Across Las Vegas
According to the Nevada Department of Transportation, approximately 53,000 vehicle accidents occurred in the state in just a single year. The figures for tractor-trailer or big vehicle accidents are far worse. Truck-related fatalities accounted for almost 10% of all road fatalities in Nevada.
Unfortunately, major truck accidents are all too common in Nevada, particularly considering the desert’s long lengths of road. Worse, these accidents resulted in the deaths of almost 4,770 people, proving that Nevada has far too many tractor-trailer accidents. This is especially true on the state’s major thoroughfares, such as Highway 95 through Las Vegas, Interstate 15 through Reno and other cities, U.S. Route 93, and Nevada Interstate 395 through Carson City. In the aftermath of deadly occurrences around the state, victims and their families are especially vulnerable.
