Las Vegas, NV (August 20, 2020) – Local law enforcement officers with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department along with first response crews reported to the scene of a car crash that occurred on the night of Thursday, August 20th at around 9:37 p.m. at the intersection of Lake Mead Boulevard and North Martin Luther King Boulevard.
The 911 dispatch logs provide very little information but imply that the accident, the cause of which has yet to be established, involved at least two vehicles.
Reports alleging that victims had sustained injuries during the crash were confirmed by local law enforcement officers. Emergency medical personnel respond to the accident scene and gave a medical assessment to those involved in the accident and saw to it that the appropriate medical treatment or transportation was received by any injured victims.
The names and post-crash medical conditions of the injured parties have not been disclosed. It is also unknown at this time if anyone involved in the crash was given a traffic citation.
Due to the fact that this incident is still under the professional inquiry of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department in an attempt to establish cause and liability, no additional details have been made readily available.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
