More and more people are moving to the state of Nevada to take advantage of the great climate and seemingly endless economic opportunities here. However, this population boom can also create very crowded and congested roadways throughout the state. High traffic volumes will only equate to more and more car accidents. When the at-fault driver flees the scene of an accident, the experience can be absolutely devastating for victims and families.
A woman was killed in a recent hit-and-run crash in Las Vegas. The accident happened during the early morning hours at North Decatur and Carmen Boulevards. According to reports, a sedan was crossing the southbound lanes of North Decatur when the car was suddenly struck broadside by an SUV.
Tragically, the driver of the sedan died at the scene of the crash, authorities said. Reports said the driver of the SUV fled the scene before police arrived. A passenger in the SUV was injured and transported to a local hospital for treatment. Police continue to investigate the accident and are asking for the public’s help in locating the driver who fled the scene.
It goes without saying that a traffic accident is an event that no person wants to experience. However, dangers are everywhere these days as more and more vehicles utilize roadways across Nevada. Those who have suffered injuries or the loss of loved ones due to negligence in car accidents could benefit by consulting a legal representative. Damages from a successful lawsuit could help victims and families cope with this traumatic experience.
