Lovelock, NV (October 6, 2021) – In the early morning hours of Wednesday, October 6, a serious pedestrian accident occurred in Lovelock.
According to police, the accident happened in the eastbound lanes of I-80. A pedestrian was walking alongside the shoulder of the highway closest to the fog line. They entered the area near a construction zone when they were suddenly struck by a semi-truck that was also traveling in the area.
Paramedics, fire crews, and numerous other responders were called to the scene to help those in need. The pedestrian, who has not yet been identified, was seriously injured in the accident. They were rushed to a Reno hospital by medical helicopter for treatment of their life-threatening injuries.
Due to the severity of the crash, multiple lanes of traffic were blocked in the area for some time. It is believed that the driver of the truck remained at the scene to cooperate with the police.
No further details have been released but the investigation into the accident continues.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family in hopes of a full recovery.
Pedestrian Accidents in Nevada
Nevada sees more pedestrian accidents than many other states in the entire U.S. Pedestrians are some of the most at-risk parties on our roads. This is due to the fact that they have no protection from harm in the event of an accident. Between the years 2008 and 2017, it was reported that approximately 600 people lost their lives in pedestrian accidents in the state. These accidents can typically be prevented when drivers pay close attention to the roads around them. If you have lost someone you love in a fatal pedestrian accident, you and your family may be feeling helpless and alone.
