Henderson, NV (July 16, 2019)
A car accident was reported on I-215, just passing Green Valley Parkway in the afternoon of July 16th. The eastbound lanes were temporarily closed due to the crash. The accident happened at approximately 12:24 p.m.
When emergency crews responded to the accident, they found at least one vehicle with major damage. Crews immediately got to work removing the vehicles and debris off of the roadway. It was necessary to temporarily block the left shoulder of the freeway. Paramedics helped the injured parties and transported those who needed additional treatment to local hospitals.
The police are still investigating the cause of the crash and will release more information once the details become available.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Nevada
In 2017, the Nevada Department of Public Safety reported that around 305 people lost their lives in car accidents throughout the state. Fatal collisions occur when drivers are distracted at the wheel, fail to yield the right-of-way, speeding, and ignoring traffic signs, just to name a few. All of these are examples of negligent behavior and accidents could be avoided, if drivers were more responsible behind the wheel.
