When someone attempts to turn left across oncoming traffic lanes and onto another road, he or she needs to be very careful with regards to completing that maneuver so that oncoming vehicles are not put in a situation of risk. Even the slightest mistake in this situation can instantly lead to disaster. While it’s too early to know exactly what occurred, what is known is that one woman was killed and another seriously injured in a Las Vegas car accident where one person was attempting to turn left.
According to the authorities, this Las Vegas car accident occurred on Sunday morning at approximately 3 a.m. An unidentified woman was driving her Nissan sedan on Charleston Boulevard when she collided with a Ford pickup truck that had been moving in the opposite direction and that was attempting to turn left onto Shadow Lane.
