Clark County, NV (September 1, 2021) – An auto accident reported near Jean claimed the lives of two victims on Monday morning. On August 30, emergency crews were requested on-site at a crash on Interstate 15.

Reports from the Nevada Highway Patrol show that just before 7 a.m., a Honda was traveling on the southbound side of Interstate 15. For unknown reasons, the vehicle collided with an 18-wheeler. The driver of the semi-truck was not injured.

The driver of the Honda, a 30-year-old female, was fatally injured in the accident. She was pronounced deceased at the scene. Her 15-year-old passenger was transported to University Medical Center in Las Vegas where she later passed away from her injuries. At this time, the incident remains under investigation. 

We would like to extend our deepest condolences to the families of the victims who lost their lives in this accident. Our thoughts are with them at this time.

Fatal Auto Accidents in Nevada

Every year, thousands of motor vehicle drivers and passengers are hurt in life-altering automobile collisions across the state of Nevada. These traffic-related incidents often force injured parties into area hospitals for emergency medical attention. Although there are several treatment options available for those harmed, there is never a guarantee that they will completely recover. In fact, countless injured parties are forced to deal with permanent disabilities and pain and suffering. Although we hope that all victims involved in motor vehicle collisions are able to recover from their injuries, this is far from the truth.

Each year, car accidents in the state of Nevada claim the lives of more than 290 people. These crashes are often preventable, yet we continue to see the devastating consequences they have on families throughout the state. Not only are families left to deal with overwhelming emotional pain and suffering, but they are often required to spend thousands of dollars on funeral arrangements and other costs. When people lose their lives in accidents, 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.
