Sparks, NV – Bicyclist Injured in Crash on Victorian Ave at 21st St

Sparks, NV (July 27, 2021) – Authorities were called to the site of a motor vehicle accident in the Sparks area that ended in injuries. On July 24, emergency crews were requested at the scene of an accident on Victorian Avenue.

Reports from authorities show that a 44-year-old man was making an illegal U-turn on Victorian Avenue at the intersection of 21st Street when his vehicle collided with a bicyclist, who was traveling westbound in the bicycle lane. The rider was transported to a local hospital for the treatment of injuries. The driver of the vehicle was subsequently arrested for driving under the influence and various other traffic violations. At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with the victims injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.

Bicycle Accidents in Nevada

Each year over 50,000 people are injured in auto accidents across the state of Nevada. In many instances, these accidents leave bicyclists to deal with painful injuries that impact nearly every aspect of their lives. Traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, and even internal organ damage are all injuries that require extensive medical care. Even though most motorists are considerate of others sharing the road, we continue to see innocent bicyclists injured at an alarming rate across our state.

Although millions of motorists utilize vehicles daily for transportation, there is no way to ensure they will make it to their destinations safely and without any problems. This is especially true for bicyclists who are sharing the road with drivers who are careless while behind the wheel. In fact, the majority of motor vehicle collisions are a result of reckless and careless motorists sharing the road. Some of the leading causes of crashes throughout our state and include:

  • drivers who are speeding
  • drivers who are under the influence of drugs and alcohol
  • drivers who are distracted by cell phones and other objects
  • drivers who failed to yield the right-of-way
  • drivers who are engaging in reckless driving behaviors
