2 Injured in Las Vegas Accident on Lake Mead Boulevard and Tonopah Drive
LAS VEGAS, NV (May 10, 2021) – Sunday, a driver and a passenger suffered injuries in a crash on Lake Mead Boulevard and Tonopah Drive.
According to police reports, the serious crash occurred near Lake Mead Boulevard and Tonopah Drive, just west of M.L.K. Boulevard.
The police revealed that a Honda sedan hit a curb and crashed into a light pole. As a result, the vehicle was “cut in half by impact” with the light pole.
Furthermore, the officials confirmed that two people occupied the car at the time of the Vegas crash.
When the Las Vegas Fire & Rescue arrived, they transported both the driver and the passenger to UMC Trauma. Also, the police revealed that the impact ejected the passenger.
Meanwhile, the preliminary investigation stated that the car traveled at a high rate of speed on Lake Mead before crashing into the light pole.
The high speed accident led to the closure of eastbound Lake Mead Boulevard while officers investigate.
When behind the wheel of a vehicle, it is your responsibility to ensure the safety of yourself and others around you. Moreover, it is important to drive within the posted speed limit. Also, slow down if you see traffic stalling ahead to avoid hitting other vehicles.
