Reno, NV (May 24, 2022) – On Tuesday, May 24th, a two-vehicle crash involving a motorcyclist left one person with injuries in Reno.
The collision took place in the northbound lanes of US-395 near the off-ramp for Red Rocks at about 12:20 p.m. A person from one of the vehicles, presumably the motorcyclist, was transported by ambulance to an area hospital in unknown condition.
No other injuries were immediately reported.
Police closed down the northbound side of the highway as they worked to establish the cause of the incident.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

An experienced Nevada motorcycle accident attorney will know how to correctly document and calculate your non-economic damages.
According to Nevada law, a victim is only entitled to punitive damages in cases where there is clear and compelling proof that the respondent was guilty of malice, fraud, or oppression.
Punitive damages are used to make an example of and penalize the respondent for their grossly negligent or malicious behavior. It is not intended as compensation for damages.
