Las Vegas, NV (August 20, 2020) – An injury-causing accident that involved at least two vehicles took place on Thursday, August 20th in the city of Las Vegas.
As indicated in emergency dispatch logs owned by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, the vehicle collision occurred at around 10:15 p.m. at the intersection of West Sahara Avenue and Arville Street.
Although local law enforcement officers filed an official report and emergency medical personnel were on the scene and able to very that victims had sustained crash-related injuries, no additional information with regard to the cause of the collision or the severity of the victim injuries have been disclosed to the general public.
The police report also neglects to mention whether or not either of the drives involved in the incident was issued a traffic citation.
Cause and liability in this incident remain under professional inquiry by crash investigators from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department at this time.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Most people are well aware that driving above the posted speed limit greatly increases your chances of being involved in a vehicle collision.
