Carson City, NV (October 29, 2021) – The Carson City Fire Department, the Nevada Highway Patrol, and sheriff’s deputies were dispatched for reports of a car accident involving a pedestrian on South Carson Street near Interstate 580 junction at about 7:00 p.m.
The involved vehicle fled the scene.
A Care Flight air ambulance was called but due to delayed arrival times, the victim was instead transported by ambulance to the trauma ward at Renown Medical Center in Reno where he ultimately died due to the severity of his injuries.
The identity of the victim has not been released.
The incident is under investigation and an arrest has been made.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
Pedestrian Fatalities in Nevada
Nevada Department of Transportation officials reported that car accidents claimed the lives of more than 60 pedestrians throughout Nevada in the last year. This marks an increase of almost 20% compared to the previous year.
Additionally, Nevada’s pedestrian fatality rate has been rising steadily during the past decade, despite the fact that traffic deaths across the state of Nevada are down overall.
Pedestrian accidents are a sad fact of life in Nevada, particularly on the busy 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 pedestrian accident, those affected often cope with financial difficulties, long-term physical issues, and emotional trauma. When victims succumb to their injuries, family members may be left in an unbelievably tough position. Sadly, families must often endure expensive medical and funeral expenses in the aftermath.
