Las Vegas Pedestrian Deaths Continue To Climb
Earlier this week, on Monday, the record setting pace of the Las Vegas pedestrian death toll continued its steady climb. At around 5:30 in the morning, Paul Wndle, 66, was attempting to cross Las Vegas Boulevard near Harmon Avenue. While Mr. Windle was not in the crosswalk, and he was struck by a white truck with a pickup body. The vehicle fled the scnene and was later found in the parking lot of the Cosmopolitan Hotel. Mr. Windle’s death was the 33rd pedestrian fatality so far in 2012 in Las Vegas.

Las Vegas city officials are grasping at straws to stem the tide of dead pedestrians on the streets of Sin City. An editorial in the Las Vegas Sun offered up the solution of loud sirens to alert pedestrians when they can cross the street. The Las Vegas Metro Police have started a pedestrian awareness campaign to alert pedestrians to the dangers of walking while looking at their mobile phones, titled “Get Your Face Out Of Your Phone.” The “Get Your Face Out Of Your Phone” campaign has been broadcast on five area radio stations. It also may be aired as a public service campaign on Southern Nevada television stations. If you have been involved in a Southern Nevada pedestrian accident and would like to be reimbursed for pain and suffering, lost work and medical bills, call Benson and Bingham today.
