One Dead, Two Injured in Suspected DUI Accident in Dayton, Nevada
A motor vehicle accident on Nevada Highway 50 has left one woman from Silver Springs dead and sent two others to a Northern Nevada hospital for further observation. The incident occurred yesterday evening and alcohol is thought to be a contributing factor.
The woman killed was the passenger in a Ford Tempo that was struck by a Mercury Sable. The driver of each vehicle was seriously injured and was taken to Renown Regional Medical Center. There, the women are considered to be in stable condition while tests and monitoring continue to avoid serious spinal cord or nervous system injuries.
Nevada accident investigators suspect that alcohol was a contributing factor in the accident, where the Sable struck the Tempo and its two passengers. In many cases where alcohol is thought to be involved in a fatal automobile accident, a wrongful death lawsuit in civil court follows any criminal charges when the victim’s family seeks to restore itself after the irreplaceable loss of a loved one.
On Nevada’s lonely rural highways, nighttime driving itself can be a hazard. Combine with alcohol, these practices can prove devastating both personally for the at-fault driver and obviously for the families of those harmed in a Nevada automobile accident. Our hearts go out to the victims and we hope for a speedy recovery.
