Carson City, NV (August 11, 2022) – Around 2:28 p.m. on the afternoon of Tuesday, August 9, a bicycle crash with injuries took place in Carson City.
According to Carson City officials, the accident happened at the intersection of Long Street and Saliman Street. A child somewhere between 12 and 13 years of age was riding on a bicycle in the area. The child was struck by a passenger vehicle due to reasons that are not fully known. When police arrived at the scene, the child was sitting on a nearby curb.
Paramedics, fire crews, and several other responders were called to the scene to help those in need. The child was conscious and alert while being examined by EMS crews but did sustain injuries. It is not known if they were taken to the hospital for further treatment.
The roadway was blocked in one or more lanes in the area, which led to delays until the scene was cleared.
No further details have been released but the investigation into the accident continues. Police will update with more information as it becomes available.
We offer our warmest sympathies to the party who has sustained injuries in this accident.
Bicycle Accidents in Nevada
Bicycle accidents are some of the least common accidents that happen on our roads. This is fortunate news, as these accidents tend to lead to catastrophic harm. This is due to the fact that bicyclists have no protection from harm in the event of an accident. Nevada, however, is no stranger to bicycle accidents, which still happen every year due to negligent acts. Six people were killed in bicycling accidents but many other people were seriously injured in these collisions in one recent year in Nevada. Being hurt in a bicycle accident can turn your life upside-down, which is why you should have the help of an attorney on your side moving forward.
