Highways across the state of Nevada are becoming increasingly crowded, and motorists are constantly at risk when traveling on these crowded roadways. Drivers can mitigate some of this risk by staying alert, practicing defensive driving habits and paying attention to surroundings. However, it’s very likely that nearly all drivers will be involved in an accident at some point in their lives. Car accidents continue to be one of the leading causes of death and injury in the United States today.
Recently, a man was killed and two others were injured in a tragic crash in Nye County. The accident happened along U.S. Highway 95 about 40 miles northwest of Las Vegas during the overnight hours. Reports said a pickup truck traveling north crossed over the centerline of the highway and drove into the southbound lanes. According to reports, the truck violently collided head-on with a southbound SUV.
Authorities said the drivers of both vehicles were critically injured and rushed to a local medical center for treatment. Tragically, a male passenger in the SUV was killed in the crash. Reportedly, the man was the director of nursing at a state prison and was married with four children.
Roadways are only going to become more dangerous as populations continue to increase across the state of Nevada. These days, it seems car accidents have become almost inevitable. When negligence in a crash causes injury or death, victims and families can take action by consulting an experienced attorney. A successfully litigated lawsuit could result in much-needed compensation that could be used to recover any monetary losses that may have occurred due to this tragic experience.
