People who drive regularly encounter intersections every day, and these environments involve many different travelers who must be accounted for by someone behind the wheel of a vehicle in order to avoid disaster. Tragically, something went very wrong yesterday just prior to a Las Vegas pedestrian accident at an intersection that took the life of a woman attempting to cross the street. Police are continuing with their investigation.
According to the authorities, this fatal Las Vegas pedestrian accident occurred yesterday morning just before 7:30 a.m. A woman in her 30’s was attempting to cross the street at the intersection of Eastern Avenue and Cedar Avenue. As she did so, she was hit by the driver of a pickup truck who was trying to turn left onto Cedar Avenue on a green light. The collision killed the woman instantly, and police indicated that the pedestrian had the right-of-way at the time.
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our most sincere condolences to the family and friends of the woman who was killed in this Las Vegas pedestrian accident. We hope that those close to her are able to come together and work through their grief. In addition, this crash will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Nevada pedestrian accidents. Every year, approximately 50 people in the state are killed because of these crashes.
If the available facts regarding this Las Vegas pedestrian accident are accurate and the woman had the right-of-way, it could lead to the filing of a Nevada wrongful death lawsuit by the family against the driver. If such a lawsuit is filed and it’s successful, the family could be awarded damages that compensate them for their losses.
