Boulder Highway Crash Injures Richard Pilant, Involving Francisco Hernandez
Las Vegas, NV (April 28, 2021) – On Monday, 75-year-old Richard Pilant was injured in a multi-vehicle crash on Dallhart Avenue that involved 48-year-old Francisco Hernandez.
The Las Vegas accident took place at about 3:42 p.m. at the Boulder Highway intersection, wherein one of the vehicles involved rolled over.
Apparently, a silver 2015 Chevy Spark driven by Hernandez turned left into the side of a 2003 Mazda Tribute driven by Pilant.
As a result, Pilant’s vehicle went into the center median of Boulder Highway and struck several large boulders. His vehicle then overturned.
Right away, emergency crews transported Pilant to UMC Trauma with serious injuries.
On the other hand, Hernandez incurred minor injuries and stayed at the scene.
Officers said Hernandez did not show signs of impairment.
There are many ways to avoid Nevada car accidents.
Aim high in steering, i.e. don’t make your steering adjustments based on what is directly in front of you, but rather what is down the road. If the road is winding to the right, for example, look as far into the turn as possible. This will improve your safety and make your turns smoother.
