45-Year-Old Man Killed in Crash

An unidentified male driver was killed in a wrong-way collision on Tuesday night in Las Vegas Valley. 

Las Vegas police reported that the crash occurred on October 26th around 6:15 p.m. near Rancho Drive and Gowan Road. 

The man driving a Chrysler 300 was driving in the wrong direction before hitting a Ford F-150 head-on.

As a result of the impact, the driver of the Chrysler was pronounced dead at the scene. 

In addition, the deceased was not wearing a seatbelt. 

The driver of the Ford F-150 was fully cooperative with authorities and did not sustain any injuries. 

Although crashes involving wrong-way driving account for only 3% of motor vehicle accidents, they usually have a higher fatality rate as they are often head-on collisions. A study in Virginia concluded that those accidents which include wrong-way driving are twenty-seven times more likely to end in a fatality compared to other types of accidents.  

In 2020, studies showed that the state of California reported 3,723 motor-vehicle deaths which was an increase from 2019. 

In the U.S. one’s odds of dying in a car accident is around 1 in 107. 

Always make sure to wear a seatbelt, obey traffic laws, and avoid distractions while driving.
