Verdi, NV – Two-Vehicle Crash on I-80 near Boomtown Claims One Life

Verdi, NV (July 29, 2021) – An auto accident reported on Wednesday morning claimed one person’s life in the Verdi area. At approximately 3:17 a.m., on July 28, emergency crews were notified that a crash on Interstate 80 required assistance.

Reports from authorities show that a head-on collision between a Honda Civic and an SUV took place on the westbound side of Interstate 80. The impact of the crash caused both vehicles to come to rest in the westbound lanes. The Honda was subsequently clipped by a semi-truck tractor-trailer as it attempted to slow down.

The driver of the Honda suffered fatal injuries in the accident. The Nevada Highway Patrol responded to the scene and declared the victim deceased. NHP and firefighters immediately went to work on securing and clearing the area. At this time, investigations surrounding the cause of the crash are underway.

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.

Fatal Car Accidents in Nevada

Every year, thousands of people are injured in life-altering automobile collisions across the state of Nevada. These accidents often force people into area hospitals for emergency medical attention. Although there are many treatment options available for victims, there is never a guarantee that victims will completely recover. As a result, hundreds of people end up passing away from their injuries. Not only are families overcome by emotional pain and suffering, but they are often forced to spend thousands of dollars on funeral arrangements and other costs. Though there have been endless measures taken to incorporate and improve safety features in vehicles, there is no way to guarantee the safety of vehicle occupants involved in collisions. We continue to see people lose their lives from collisions at an alarming rate.

Many victims end up passing away from collisions caused by driver actions. Some of the most common causes of collisions include drivers who fail to yield the right of way, impaired drivers, distracted drivers, and those who act recklessly while behind the wheel. When victims lose their lives in traffic-related incidents, due to the negligence of other drivers, their families should seek legal guidance from a competent wrongful death attorney in Nevada as soon as possible.
