Moped Crash Kills Driver in Las Vegas Valley

January 27, 2018
A few days ago a traffic fatality took place in the central part of the Las Vegas Valley. Although this is a frequent occurrence in Clark County, with emergency responders in the area taking calls for assistance all over Southern Nevada and working with injuries from car crashes almost daily, that doesn't make the loss of life any less sad. In this instance, it was a Las Vegas local man who lost his life while driving a motorized scooter, also known as a moped, on a crowded Southern Nevada road. The man has recently been identified by the Clark County Coroners Office as an adult male, aged just over 65 years old, and named Michael Edward Sepesy. We're able to tell our readers his name because it has been officially released by the Clark County Coroners office and the victim of the injury moped accident's next of kin have been notified of his death.The man died when his moped crashed directly into a box truck last Wednesday afternoon, causing a serious traffic jam on streets surrounding the Las Vegas moped traffic accident. Unfortunately, the official cause of death is still unknown, and will not be made available to the public until the experts at the Clark County Coroners Office have a chance to evaluate the situation and conduct a full autopsy on the body of Sepesy.

The official time of death released by representatives from the Las Vegas Metro Police Department place the accident's collision at just after 2:10 on the afternoon on Wednesday. The moped injury and death truck crash took place on South Valley View Boulevard near the intersection of Alta Drive in the central area of the Las Vegas Valley. A box truck was traveling northbound on South Valley View Boulevard in the leftmost lane when the moped being driven by Michael Edward Sepesy pulled out from a private residence on that road, just ahead of the intersection. Officers from the Las Vegas Metro Police Department believe that the moped was attempting to cross the lanes of northbound traffic with the intention of traveling southbound on South Valley View Boulevard, when it veered too close and crashed right into the left side of the box truck. The vespa rider was ejected from his seat and slammed into the roadway in this Las Vegas moped death accident. The driver of the truck quickly realized what happened and brought his box truck to a controlled and complete stop. The truck driver then proceeded to do the right thing and stayed at the scene of the Southern Nevada injury car wreck to report the serious traffic death to the proper authorities. The death was only the second of the year in the jurisdiction of the Las Vegas Metro Police Department. Although the details of this motor scooter injury auto accident in Clark County are still under investigation by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department's Collision Investigation Section, the impact from the ejection and collision with the road seems to be the most likely reason the Las Vegas resident moped driver lost his life.
