A 49-year-old man was killed in a Las Vegas car accident after his car rear-ended another Chevy pickup truck. According to The Las Vegas Review-Journal, the fatal car crash occurred near Main Street and Bonneville Avenue in Las Vegas. After the man’s Honda Accord rear-ended the pickup, the tires continued to spin and the Accord veered off the roadway and into a concrete wall. He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. The driver of the pickup was not injured. Officials are looking into the cause of this fatal car accident.
There are many questions that must be asked following an accident where a vehicle veered out of the driver’s control. Did the driver suffer from a medical condition? Did a defective auto part such as a faulty accelerator, accelerator pedal, or defective brake system play a factor in the crash? Were there other contributing factors such as dangerous roadway conditions or negligent driving?
In cases where vehicle defects or malfunctions are suspected, it would be in the best interests of victims’ families to preserve the vehicle unaltered so it can be examined thoroughly by an expert.
