Las Vegas Wrong-Way Collision

Two Vehicles Collide Head-On, Result of Wrong-Way Driver 

A wrong-way driver caused a head-on collision in Las Vegas on Thursday morning. 

The collision occurred on November 11th around 4 a.m. on Decatur Boulevard at Kansas Avenue. 

Per reports, a Honda Civic was heading north in the southbound lanes prior to crashing head-on with another Honda Civic. 

The wrong-way driver was suspected to be under the influence of some sort. They also sustained major injuries as a result.

In addition, the other driver sustained minor injuries. Both drivers were also taken to a local hospital for treatment. 

Authorities also shut down the southbound lanes for a couple of hours following the accident. 

The crash remains under investigation. 

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. 

According to NHTSA, more than a quarter (25%) of accident-related deaths are linked to the use of alcohol. With that being said, according to the CDC, there are 30 people that are killed everyday in a car accident as a result of an alcohol-impaired driver. That is equivalent to one death every 50 minutes.  

If your injuries are caused by the negligence of a third party you may be entitled to compensation. In the event of a death, families may also be entitled to wrongful death benefits.
