We see plenty of airplane accidents in Nevada as we write about frequently on our Las Vegas injury and accident blog. We see air accidents up here in Northern Nevada as well, just perhaps not as frequently. We see plenty of car accidents in both Southern Nevada and Northern Nevada. What we don’t often see is an accident involving an airplane and vehicle, much less one where no one was killed. But that’s exactly what happened just a few days ago as an airplane made an emergency landing on Pyramid Highway, where it caused a vehicle accident and four reportedly minor injuries. Considering how most plane crashes end, these folks are lucky to be alive. That doesn’t mean the injuries don’t turn out to be more serious, long lasting, and expensive. That’s why savvy individuals make sure to call top Nevada injury lawyers Benson & Bingham right away after an accident. The sooner we get on the case the more likely you are to receive a very favorable outcome – how things are handled early in the process makes a big difference.

This Nevada airplane and vehicle accident occurred on July 26, just a few days ago. An experimental small airplane, said to be a type of Thunder Mustang, began losing power shortly after taking off from Stead Airport. The plane, on its way to South Dakota, had to make an emergency landing at the nearest workable landing strip, in this case, Nevada Route 445 on a somewhat remote stretch 30 minutes or so north of Reno. It was at this time that the plane struck a truck that was on the road, causing injuries to the two people in the truck as well as the two people in the airplane. There is no word on whether the airplane pilot will be given a Nevada speeding ticket for excess speed on the roadway!
