Reno, NV (August 4, 2022) – According to reports released by Reno Police, a scooter accident involving a passenger vehicle took place on a roadway on Wednesday morning, August 3.
According to Reno Police, the accident happened in the early morning hours on Kirman Avenue. Two people were riding on two separate scooters in the area when a passenger vehicle started to make a left turn from Kirman to Capitol Hill. The driver did not see the scooter riders and slammed into them, which led to extensive damage to all involved vehicles.
Local emergency responders, including paramedics and fire crews, were dispatched to the scene to help those with injuries. One of the riders, who has not yet been formally identified, sustained injuries in the accident. They were hospitalized but are expected to be okay.
The roadway was blocked in the area of the accident for several hours. Police worked to clear the scene as quickly as possible.

Scooter Accidents in Nevada
Being involved in a scooter accident can be a painful and scary experience. These accidents happen nowhere near as common as other accidents on Nevada roads. However, when they do occur, they tend to lead to some of the most catastrophic harm. This is due to the fact that scooter riders have no protection from harm on our roads. Depending on what an impact one of these accidents have had on your life, you may need to move forward with an injury claim. This is why speaking with a legal advocate is so essential.
After a scooter accident, you may have a variety of questions that you cannot answer on your own. These could include some of the following:
- What evidence do you need to prove that another party is at fault for your accident?
- What deadlines will you be required to meet when it comes to moving forward with a claim?
- Will your claim be settled or will it make it all the way to trial?
- What should you say to the insurance company after your accident?
With the help of a Reno personal injury attorney, you can answer these questions and so many others.
