1 Killed in Las Vegas Bicycle Accident
LAS VEGAS, NV (October 14, 2019) – A person died in a bicycle accident on Hacienda Avenue on October 11.
According to LVMPD Lt. Jeff Clark, officers responded to the area of Hacienda Avenue and Rapunzel Court, between South Durango and Buffalo drives, just before 5:00 p.m.
The evidence and witness statements revealed that a westbound 2017 Honda Civic traveled on Hacienda Avenue. Meanwhile, the bicyclist rode west on the north sidewalk of Hacienda Avenue. The rider then traveled off the sidewalk and into the road. The bicyclist eventually tried to cross southbound across Hacienda outside a marked crosswalk.
As the bicyclist crossed the path, it crashed with the Civic in the inside westbound travel lane. As a result, the bicycle rider died at the scene.
Meanwhile, the Civic driver stayed at the scene and didn’t show signs of impairment.
The crash remains under investigation.
