People who are walking through parking lots tend to keep their eyes on moving vehicles, but few if any who are doing so would ever believe that a motorist would ever travel with enough speed to inflict serious and perhaps fatal injuries. Tragically, that’s exactly what happened yesterday morning when a man was hit and killed in a casino parking lot in a Pahrump pedestrian accident. Police continue to investigate the situation.
According to the authorities, this fatal Pahrump pedestrian accident occurred yesterday morning at just after 10 a.m. A 42-year-old man was getting into his car with his wife in the parking lot of the Pahrump Nugget, located at 681 South Highway 160. At that time, a 77-year-old man lost control of his vehicle, slammed into the man and ran him over after he hit the ground. The man was rushed to a nearby hospital but died from his injuries.
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our most sincere condolences to the family and friends of the man who was killed. We also hope that the police investigation leads to a fast and fair conclusion. In addition, this Pahrump pedestrian accident will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Nevada pedestrian accidents. Every year, hundreds of people are injured and nearly 50 people are killed in these occurrences.
If the available information regarding this Pahrump pedestrian accident is accurate and the man driving was at fault for the crash, it could lead to the filing of a Nevada wrongful death lawsuit by the family of the person who was killed. If such a lawsuit was filed and was successful, the family could be awarded damages that compensate them for their losses.
