18-Year Old Woman Killed in Auto Accident on Las Vegas Boulevard

An accident involving three teens has left the driver of the vehicle dead after a two car crash on South Las Vegas Boulevard.  The woman was driving a 1990 Taurus that allegedly pulled from Shelbourne Avenue into an oncoming 2000 Ford F350 truck.  None of the four passengers in the truck were injured; however, the other two teens driving with the woman killed were injured in the accident.

The car accident occured at approximately 8:00 p.m. on January, 4th, a sad reminder that auto accidents kill more teens then any other event in that age group in the United States.  According to the National Center for Health Statistic, a 2005 study sources automobile accidents at nearly 40% of total fatalities for Older Teens (15 – 19).

While many car accidents are due to unintended circumstances, many others in Las Vegas are a result of reckless driving, impairment from alcohol or drugs, or other avoidable precursors due to driver neglect.  It is a person’s right to consult a Nevada Attorney if one has been a victim of an auto accident.  The Law Offices of Benson and Bingham are experienced with helping victims of car accidents in Nevada understand their rights.
