The collision took place at the intersection of Bruce and Fremont Street at approximately 10:07 a.m. between a Buick and a motorcycle. The accident occurred when the Buick attempted to travel through the intersection and struck the motorcyclist who was also passing through.

Motorcycle Accidents in Nevada
Nevada motorcycle accidents can take place for a multitude of different reasons. The most common reason for a motorcycle collision to happen in Nevada is a driver’s failed attempt to see a motorcyclist when making a left-hand turn. This type of negligent driver error causes nearly half of all of the motorcycle accidents in the United States.
In most cases, injured accident victims are faced with debilitating pain that has a negative impact on their emotional and physical well-being. This pain can be exacerbated when their injuries were caused by another person’s negligence. Depending on the severity of the collision, an injured accident victim and their family could be faced with towering medical bills and various damages and losses. In the event that an injured accident victim loses their life, family members should consider contacting a wrongful death attorney in Nevada in order to collect compensation for funeral costs and other associated costs.
