Las Vegas, NV (November 22, 2021) – A man was killed early Monday morning, November 22, in a crash that occurred near Craig Road and North 5th Street in North Las Vegas, authorities said.
Officers with the North Las Vegas Police Department said the wreck involved a red Chevrolet Cruz and a black Ford F-350 pickup truck and happened just after 6:30 a.m. The eastbound lanes of the intersection were closed until about 10:00 a.m. as police worked at the scene.
Initial reports indicate that the driver of the Cruz rear-ended the pickup truck, which was stopped at a red light in the eastbound lanes.
The driver of the Cruz, believed to be in his 20s, was pronounced dead at the scene. EMS units also appeared to treat or transport other injured victims.
Police say speed probably contributed to the crash, though their investigation is continuing. Officers also asked anyone with information about the incident to call the NLVPD.
Our deepest condolences go out to the family of the deceased victim. Our thoughts are with the victims who were injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
Deadly Multi-Car Wrecks in Nevada
Motor vehicle accidents can have a debilitating impact on the lives of those involved. Regrettably, we see many people in our state left with severe injuries from crashes. The Nevada Department of Transportation reports that nearly 52,000 car crashes take place each year in the state of Nevada, with more than 40% of that total taking place in the greater Las Vegas area.
Clearly, these motor vehicle accidents are an unfortunately common fact of life in Nevada, particularly on the bustling streets of Las Vegas. When it comes to fatal accidents and pedestrian incidents across the state, victims and families are particularly vulnerable in the aftermath.
After a car accident, those affected often cope with financial difficulties, long-term physical issues, and serious emotional trauma. Sadly, when victims succumb to their injuries, family members must deal with expensive medical and funerary costs.
