Las Vegas Senior Citizen Killed in Multi-Car Accident
Another Southern Nevadan has been killed in a Southern Nevada multi-car accident as the city of Las Vegas and State of Nevada work tirelessly to stem the rising tide of Las Vegas traffic accidents. Yesterday, in the mid-afternoon, 18-year old Brooke Jones was driving her new Ford Mustang approaching the intersection of Fort Apache and Red Hills. At the same time, an unnamed 78-year old man was driving his 1979 Volkswagen Beetle through the same intersection. The 2013 Mustang struck the vintage convertible Volkswagen, ejecting the 78-year old driver from the vehicle. The elderly man was pronounced dead by paramedics at the scene. After being hit by the Ford Mustang, the Volkswagen Beetle, now driverless, struck a 1997 Acura. Those in the Japanese made vehicle suffered minor injuries. The Southern Nevada personal injury law firm of Benson and Bingham has significant sympathy for all involved in this tragic accident.
News reports differ on how many were injured in this Clark County automobile crash. Regardless, those traveling with Ms. Jones and in the 1997 Acura only suffered minor injuries from the crash and were not taken to area hospitals. The driver of the 1979 Volkswagen Beetle represents the 69th traffic fatality in the Las Vegas area.
