Car wrecks: Head-on collision claims 2 lives

Getting behind the wheel of a motor vehicle and just going for a short drive can result in a serious accident. Roadways across the state of Nevada are bustling with traffic almost 24 hours a day. Despite stringent traffic laws and updated safety measures, serious and fatal car wrecks continue to rise each year in Nevada. A head-on crash in Silver Springs recently claimed the life of two motorists.

Distracted drivers are causing more and more car accidents

Roads across Nevada are more dangerous than ever before. These days, motorists are forced to navigate and share roadways with increasing numbers of impaired or distracted drivers. This is a recipe for car accidents. A recent crash in Las Vegas involving four vehicles left one person in critical condition.

Road rage contributes to a high percentage of car accidents

As traffic increases, reckless driving and road rage are becoming very real and present dangers on roadways across Nevada. Driving can certainly be a difficult task on today's congested roads and often brings about stress and anxiety. It is not uncommon for drivers to make mistakes, as some drivers may not be as experienced as others. Reckless drivers are also becoming more and more of an issue, often contributing to car accidents. How a person reacts behind the wheel to inexperienced or reckless drivers can be the difference in arriving safely to a destination or becoming the next headline.

Car accidents: Driver injured, another killed in Vegas crash

These days, it is becoming more and more dangerous to get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle in the state of Nevada. Just going for a short drive can result in an accident that could have far-reaching impacts. Due to the increasing numbers of vehicles sharing roadways across the state, car accidents are on the rise. Most accidents prove to be nothing more than minor inconveniences. However, some accidents can be deadly.

Car wrecks: 3 seriously injured while assisting disabled vehicle

Its no secret that Nevada roadways are becoming more and more crowded, especially in cities like Las Vegas and Reno. People are flocking to Nevada cities to take advantage of the abundance of unique opportunities that abound here. A sudden influx of traffic can be the fuel to spark a seemingly unending cycle of car wrecks in any city. In Reno, a recent crash resulted in several injuries and a woman facing charges.

Car accidents: Drunk drivers continue to be a problem in Nevada

Despite stern legislation and tireless law enforcement efforts, drunk driving continues to be a real problem in Nevada and across the United States. Its common knowledge that operating a vehicle while intoxicated is one of the most dangerous things a person can do, yet people continue to do it. Statistically, car accidents involving drunk drivers have a higher likelihood of being fatal. A recent accident in Las Vegas involving an alleged drunk driver claimed the life of an expectant mother.

Driving while intoxicated can lead to deadly car accidents

Unfortunately, it seems more and more Nevada drivers these days are irresponsible and unfocused. Driving while under the influence of alcohol can not only result in serious car accidents but can also put offenders behind bars for a very long time. A Reno man was recently sentenced to 40 years in prison for driving drunk and killing two passengers and another driver in a crash. 

Some car accidents have fatal consequences

One of the few guarantees in life is that accidents are going to happen. Some accidents are minor, and nothing more than mild inconveniences. However, some accidents can have life-altering consequences. Nevada residents and visitors are at risk for car accidents as they navigate increasingly crowded and congested roadways across the state. A tragic accident in Las Vegas recently claimed the lives of a newly engaged couple.

Nevada travelers must be careful to avoid trucking accidents

Travelers and commuters making their way across the state of Nevada often utilize interstate highways, which offer the convenience of faster travel with less stop-and-go traffic. However, travelers share these popular roadways with an increasing number of semitrailers that are making their way across the country. As the economy grows, so does the need to transport goods and merchandise. This equates to more and more big rigs criss-crossing the country, which can lead to trucking accidents.
