Drivers who move down city roads during the morning hours tend to be aware of the fact that pedestrians will be in the area. Many if not most of these pedestrians are on their way to school, and adults also tend to understand that children in general do not process the nuances of traffic flow as well as those who have more experience. Unfortunately, something went very wrong this morning when a child was hit and critically injured in a Las Vegas pedestrian accident.
According to the authorities, this Las Vegas pedestrian accident occurred at just after 7 a.m. this morning. The unidentified driver of a vehicle collided with an unidentified child near the intersection of Jones Boulevard and Reno Avenue. The police did not release the cause of the crash, and they are continuing to investigate the situation. The child was rushed to a nearby hospital with critical injuries.
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our most sincere thoughts and support for the child who was critically injured in this Las Vegas pedestrian accident. We hope that the victim is able to pull through and recover fully from the harm suffered. In addition, this crash will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Nevada pedestrian accidents.

Clearly, much more information would be necessary in order to be able to assign a theory of fault with regards to this Las Vegas pedestrian accident. However, if the driver was at fault or even shared fault for this crash, it could lead to the filing of a Nevada personal injury lawsuit against the driver by the family of the child.
