Drunk driver accidents: Driver arrested in 6-car Las Vegas crash

One of the most reckless and dangerous things that a person can do is drive while intoxicated. Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol causes thousands of deadly accidents each year in Nevada and across the country. Unfortunately, drunk driver accidents seem to be increasing. A recent crash in Las Vegas left one person dead and three others injured.

The accident occurred during the overnight hours near the intersection of Warm Springs Road and Las Vegas Boulevard. Accident reports say a Mercedes was traveling westbound on Warm Springs Road and hit the rear of a Lexus. In an attempt to flee the scene, the driver of the Mercedes apparently drove into a nearby mall parking lot and back out onto Warm Springs Road, witness say. According to reports, the driver of the Mercedes then ran a red light at the intersection and crashed into a Chevy Malibu.

The collision also affected three other vehicles that were stopped at the red light, reports indicate. Unfortunately, the driver of the Chevy Malibu died at the scene of the accident. Police say they interviewed the driver of the Mercedes and noticed actions that indicated alcohol and drug use. Reportedly, the driver admitted to drinking shortly before the accident. She was arrested by police and charged with DUI.

Law enforcement officers in Nevada work around the clock to enforce laws and protect citizens from impaired drivers. Despite these efforts, drunk driver accidents continue to be a very real problem across America. Those who have suffered the loss of a loved one in this type of accident should consider discussions with an experienced attorney. A successful lawsuit could provide financial relief to help with end-of-life expenses and other monetary losses.
