Las Vegas, NV (June 8, 2022) – On Wednesday, June 8, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department was sent to investigate an accident involving a semi-truck that resulted in injuries.
At roughly 11:05 p.m., multiple right lanes on southbound U.S. Highway 95 at Exit 78 to Valley View Boulevard were blocked due to an accident, creating a considerable traffic backup that persisted for over an hour. Emergency medical techs from Las Vegas were also asked to respond to the scene of the incident to examine the severity of the injuries suffered by the victims involved in the crash.
The LVMPD or any other first responders have not disclosed any information on the cause of the accident or the victims’ injuries, however. The police investigation into the events leading up to the traffic accident is still underway, and no new information has been disclosed.
We express our heartfelt consolations to the victims and wish them a speedy and thorough recovery.
Accidents in Las Vegas Involving Commercial Trucks
Commercial vehicles, which include oversized tractor-trailers, large metro-area buses, and other similarly oversized motor vehicles, played a substantial part in about 363,000 traffic crashes throughout the nation in just one year, according to the most current statistics collected by authorities in the Silver State. Regrettably, nearly 4,750 people were killed as a direct result of these incidents, while another 100,000 or more were badly injured.
Needless to say, Nevada claims a disproportionately high frequency of these events involving tractor-trailers. This is especially apt on Highway 95, Interstate 15, which runs through Las Vegas, U.S. Highway 93, and Nevada Interstate 515, traversing the Las Vegas and Paradise areas.
Unfortunately, accidents involving semi-trailer drivers have the potential to inflict devastating harm, both physically and emotionally, as well as life-altering financial consequences for victims. This is due to the fact that semi-trailer drivers are more likely to travel for longer distances than other drivers and travel in these significantly larger vehicles, making the consequences of an auto accident that much more severe.
