People who drive any type of vehicle deal with the environment presented at intersections every day. While most motorists pass through these environments without giving them a second thought, the unfortunate fact of the matter is that even the slightest mistake made at these locations can lead to disaster. Tragically, some sort of mistake was made on Wednesday that led to the death of a man in a Las Vegas motorcycle accident at an intersection.
According to the authorities, this fatal Las Vegas motorcycle accident occurred on Wednesday at 4:40 p.m. The 67-year-old driver of a Hummer was moving in a southbound direction on Jones Boulevard when it attempted to turn left at the intersection with Evergreen Avenue. As the driver attempted this maneuver, a motorcycle that was moving in a northbound direction on Jones Boulevard collided with the passenger side of the SUV. The 21-year-old motorcyclist was killed as a result of the collision.
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our most sincere condolences to the family and friends of the young man who was killed in this Las Vegas motorcycle accident. Losing a life in this manner is always a tragedy. In addition, this crash will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Nevada motorcycle accidents. Nearly one person every week is killed in these types of crashes.
Clearly, this situation will come down to right-of-way with regards to assigning fault for the crash. If the driver of the SUV turned into the path of the motorcycle, then it could lead to the filing of a Nevada wrongful death lawsuit by the family of the man who was killed in this Las Vegas motorcycle accident.
