Man convicted, sent to prison for fatal drunk driving accident

A drunk driver who killed a couple who had just announced their plans to get married will spend up to 40 years in prison for his role in a deadly accident in the Reno area. The driver refused to plead guilty to the charges against him and instead took his case to a trial, where a jury convicted him. Reports indicate that the man will be able to get out of prison on parole after 14 years, but, of course, he will need to get approved for that privilege.

After a fatal motorcycle accident, legal help is available

A previous post on this blog talked about how although motorcycle accidents declined in Nevada between 2016 and 2017, the state still has a problem when it comes to motorcyclists making up a disproportionate number of the total victims of fatal motorcycle accidents. It is unfortunate that motorcyclists in Reno and the other communities of this state seem to have a rough go of it. It is equally unfortunate that, while many of these fatal accidents can be attributed to a negligent driver of another vehicle, motorcyclists still struggle against the common perception that they are unsafe drivers and are usually to blame for an accident.

Number of deadly motorcycle crashes down in Nevada

According to a recent report, during 2017 motorcyclists in Reno and the rest of Nevada were in slightly less danger of dying in a crash than they were the year before. According to preliminary numbers, 54 people died in connection with motorcycle accidents in this state, which is a decrease of 20 from the 74 people who died in 2016. This was an almost 24 percent decrease in the number of fatalities and exceeded the national decrease of about 5.5 percent.
