Sparks, NV (May 31, 2021) – On Saturday afternoon, May 29, a motorcycle accident occurred in the industrial area of Sparks and left one victim hospitalized.
Initial reports stated that the two-vehicle wreck happened when a car took an illegal U-turn and hit a motorcyclist around 3:30 p.m. The incident occurred at 900 Glendale Avenue and according to officers at the scene, they issued a citation to the driver who caused the crash.
The victim was ejected from their motorcycle and was transported to an area hospital in serious but stable condition. Both the motorcycle and the vehicle sustained major damage, but officers did not say whether the driver was injured.

Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family in hopes of a full recovery.
Motorcycle Accidents in Nevada
Because motorcyclists have no protection from harm in the event of an accident, they are more likely to be seriously injured or lose their lives in the event of an accident. In one recent year, it was determined that approximately 24 people were killed in horrific motorcycle accidents due to the negligence of others. Many others suffered from serious injuries and were hospitalized. If you have been hurt in a motorcycle crash and wonder where you can turn, you should have the help of an attorney by your side.
