911 dispatch logs maintained by the Las Vegas Police Department state that the collision occurred at about 1:35 p.m. at the intersection of East Flamingo Road and South Maryland Parkway.
Local police officers as well as emergency medical personnel were both called to the scene of the accident where they medically assessed those involved and administered the appropriate medical aid to at least one injured party.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Paradise
Heavy tourist traffic coming in and out of the state all year long is believed to be a major contributor to some of Nevada’s less-than-desirable vehicle collision statistics, a sentiment that is reflected among almost every state wherein tourism is a major contributor to the economy.
For example, even though Nevada’s annual rate of car accidents for every 100 million vehicle miles driven has declined fairly regularly over the past decade or so, it still holds a place on the top 10 list of states that have the highest collision rates in the United States.
Nevada is seventh in the nation in terms of geographical area and 35th in terms of its population, with upwards of 2.6 million residents who call the Silver State home.
