Las Vegas, NV – Pedestrian Fatally Injured in Crash on Spring Mountain Rd near Wynn Rd
Las Vegas, NV (July 24, 2021) – A pedestrian accident reported in the Chinatown neighborhood on Sunday morning has claimed one person’s life. At approximately 6:31 a.m., on July 18, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed at the scene of a crash on Spring Mountain Road.
Reports from local authorities show that a pedestrian was traveling in the area of Spring Mountain Road when they were struck by a 2005 Toyota Highlander just east of Wynn Road. The pedestrian, a 72-year-old man, was rushed to UMC where he later died from his injuries. At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
We would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family of the victim who lost their life in this accident. Our thoughts are with them at this time.
Pedestrian crashes can have a life-changing impact on victims and their families. Unfortunately, these incidents claim the lives of countless victims in Las Vegas and throughout Clark County each year. People who are involved in pedestrian crashes are at an enormous disadvantage due to the fact that they are unprotected against the impact of vehicles, which often weigh several thousands of pounds.
When victims lose their lives in pedestrian crashes, surviving family members are often left to cover burial expenses, pay tens of thousands of dollars on funeral costs, and deal with lost wages, and the overwhelming mental and emotional pain and suffering they bring. After losing loved ones in traffic-related crashes caused by negligent drivers, families can benefit greatly by reaching out to a Nevada wrongful death attorney. In some cases, surviving relatives may have legal options available to help them hold wrongdoers accountable for their actions.
