One dead after motorcycle and pickup truck collide

In order to obtain a motorcycle license, Nevada law dictates specialized classes are a requirement. Those who want to operate a motorcycle have to go to and complete courses that pertain to riding a motorcycle. These courses are similar to driver's education courses which everyone who possesses a driver's license has to successfully complete. Presumably, motorcycle education classes talk about and make operators aware of the inherent dangers in riding a motorcycle. Having a healthy appreciation of this may go a long way in motorcycle operator safety. However, even knowing the dangers may not be enough to prevent an accident.

A motorcycle accident occurred in Las Vegas recently that resulted in the death of the motorcyclist. The accident happened when a southbound pickup truck was attempting to make a left-hand turn. At the same time the westbound motorcycle operator was approaching the same intersection. The pickup truck and the motorcyclist collided and the person on the motorbike was thrown from the bike. The motorcycle accident victim was taken to the hospital but later died as a result of his injuries. Both the driver of the pickup truck and his passenger only suffered minor injuries.

Two seriously injured in car accident in Las Vegas

Contrary to popular public belief, courts do tend to get involved in car accident cases. This is more so the case when the accident is serious in nature and those involved in the accident were injured or killed. That is not to say that the courts do not play a part in minor car accidents as well. However, in less serious car crashes, the courts are not as visible because usually the parties can work it out between or among themselves. The courts are called upon to render decisions where the victims in the accident or the families of the victims can't come to a resolution because the issues at hand may be overwhelming and complex.

In Las Vegas, Nevada, there was a recent two-car collision that resulted in both drivers being taken to hospitals for medical attention. Police investigation showed that the accident happened when the driver of one vehicle failed to slow down and struck another vehicle from behind. The car that was hit spun around and then hit a utility pole. The other car skidded off the roadway and hit a utility pole as well. Serious injuries resulted from this accident.

Pedestrian dies after being hit by SUV in Las Vegas

Most drivers probably accept the fact that they will be involved in some type of car accident during their driving lives. The reality of the matter is that driving is an extremely risky activity that requires everyone to be alert and conscientious when behind the wheel. Unfortunately, there are instances where car accidents occur because not enough attention is being paid to what is happening on the roadways. Driving is a very "real time" activity that demands 100% participation at all times. When that fails to happen, the likelihood of an auto accident is more probable.

When an accident involves two vehicles, the aftermath can be difficult to handle depending on the nature and severity of the accident. This is even more true in car versus pedestrian accidents. Recently in Las Vegas, a woman who was crossing the street was struck and killed by a motorist. According to police, the intersection that the woman was attempting to cross is a dangerous one for pedestrians and authorities constantly warn people to be careful at that particular crossing.

Driver who caused deadly accident is Las Vegas flees the scene

Recently in Nevada there was a fatal crash involving a pick-up truck and a moped on Windmill Lane and Las Vegas Boulevard. The moped was waiting at a light at the corner of the aforementioned streets when a Ford pick-up truck plowed into it from behind. The driver and the passenger on the moped were thrown from the vehicle. The driver of the truck did not stop after making contact with the moped and proceeded to hit another car. Both the driver and the passenger of the moped were later pronounced dead after suffering severe injuries. The police tried to locate the driver of the pick-up truck, but their efforts did not pan out.

When there is negligence on the part of a vehicle operator that caused the accident, the ensuing police investigation tries to be pretty clear about where the fault lies. After the police have completed their investigation and issued citations, that information can be used in civil court for a possible lawsuit against the party at fault. Many times a lawsuit of this nature is based on recovering compensatory or punitive damages as a result of the accident.

Car crash in Las Vegas leaves 3 critically injured

It is never easy or simple dealing with the aftermath of a car accident, especially where the accident results in serious injury or death. The victims of car accidents and their families have a number of things to handle; this is particularly true when the victims are unable to handle matters on their own due to injury. Ensuring that an accident victim's legal rights are protected is imperative because a lawsuit may provide the victim with much needed compensation.

In Las Vegas a two-car accident occurred which injured three people. Apparently, the driver of one vehicle was attempting to change lanes and did not notice another vehicle in the lane. The driver of the first car hit the second one and caused it to cross over the median and hit a concrete barrier. The driver of the second car was taken to the hospital with serious injuries and the two passengers were listed in critical condition. The driver of the first car was not injured.

Man and woman injured in motorcycle accident

The reality is that there are certain dangers that can occur when on a motorcycle that may be different than those presented by driving an automobile. The motorcyclist can do everything right when riding their motorcycle and heed all traffic laws, but accidents can still happen as a result of other vehicles on the streets not heeding to the rights of motorcyclists.

In Las Vegas, Nevada, there was a rather horrific accident involving a car and a motorcycle. Apparently, a motorist collided with another vehicle and then rear-ended the motorcyclist. The driver of the car fled the accident on foot. However, a few hours later he turned himself in. The motorcyclist and his passenger were transported to the hospital for medical attention. They suffered injuries that have been described as serious. The perpetrator in the accident was charged with a felony.

Apps may be useful in minor car wrecks in Las Vegas

Car accidents can vary in degree. They either can be mild or very serious in nature, depending on the facts and circumstances surrounding the accident. Car accidents that are not serious or deadly are commonly referred to as fender-benders. A fender-bender is an accident that usually occurs on a major roadway in which one vehicle runs into the back of another, causing minor damage. In most cases, fender-benders do not result in serious bodily injuries. Of course, this is subject to the amount of impact involved in the accident; however, if a car accident is deemed minor, then there is likely to be only cosmetic damage to the vehicles involved.

Since this is the age of apps and smartphones and the like, it was only a matter of time before they would soon govern how minor car accidents are handled, as well. In Las Vegas, Nevada, the police have announced that they will no longer respond to minor car crashes. Apparently, because there are not enough police officials to deal with low-level car accidents, the individuals involved in this type of accident will be left to their own devices, literally. As long as both parties to the accident have their insurance information, the app has the ability to guide the accident participants through a checklist of what to do after an accident. The authorities will still be available to investigate car accidents that involve injuries or where there is a problem with acquiring proper insurance information.

Motorcyclist dies after striking another car

Driving any type of vehicle can be considered a dangerous activity, which is why certain tests have to be passed before a person can acquire the credentials to operate a motor vehicle of any kind. This is particularly true with operating a motorcycle. Those who drive motorcycles recognize the dangers of riding and often take extra precautions when doing so. This, however, may not keep the operator of a motorcycle out of harm's way, as it only takes the slightest mistake while operating a bike to cause serious damage.

In Reno, Nevada, a man who was on a motorcycle recently was pronounced dead after he crashed into a car that was attempting to make a left-hand turn. Apparently, the man on the bike was speeding on the roadway when he hit the car, which resulted in a fatal motorcycle crash. The motorcyclist could not stop in time to avoid the car and thus collided with it, causing his death. The police investigation did not find there to be drugs or alcohol related to the accident.

Las Vegas auto accident kills one, injures two

Drivers in Las Vegas must always be aware of other drivers on the road to avoid serious injury in an auto accident. Car accidents occur when least expected and are often the result of careless, inexperienced drivers or those who have chosen to drive under the influence. Auto accidents can result in fatalities or serious injuries, along with high medical expenses and severe changes to the lives of the victims.

A 17-year-old male driver is accused of going through a red light, and crashing into another vehicle, leading to the death of a 42-year-old woman. The crash seriously injured her two passengers, an 18-year-old man and 16-year-old girl. According to witnesses, the 17-year-old was driving a pickup truck when he went through the light and crashed into the driver's side of a Ford Mustang. Upon impact, the Mustang then crashed into another vehicle. The boy driving the pickup truck was not injured, nor was the driver of the third car. The driver of the Mustang was declared dead at the site of the accident.

Chemical spill from truck accident leaves one injured

There a number of different types of vehicles that share the roadways, including but not limited to cars, motorcycles and trucks. Trucks can be broken down into categories. There are pickup trucks and SUV's, and work trucks and 18-wheelers, which are probably the largest vehicles on the roads. Being involved in an accident with any type of truck can lead to significant injuries as well as pretty significant property damage. Truck accidents tend to be serious in nature.

A collision involving a work truck and a car occurred in Las Vegas recently and a hazmat team had to assist the authorities in controlling the scene of the accident. According to the reports, a pool work truck carrying chlorine was involved in an accident with a taxi. As a result of the accident, the taxi driver suffered only minor injuries and the driver of the truck was not injured. However, the collision resulted in a chlorine spill that had to be cleaned up by the hazmat crew, which is standard procedure in these types of situations.
