One killed, one injured in catastrophic car crash on I-80

After a night out on the town, if a person is too intoxicated to drive, they have options. They can take a taxi or the bus home. They can catch a ride with a sober driver. They can even remain where they are until they are no longer intoxicated. Unfortunately, intoxicated drivers will still take to the streets of Nevada, causing catastrophic accidents.

Nevada police are investigating a crash on Interstate 80 close to midnight on October 12 that killed one person and left another with life-threatening injuries. The incident took place when a motorist, age 39, was heading the wrong way on I-80. That motorist was operating a 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport. He got onto the interstate in the wrong direction, driving westward in the eastbound lane. He then hit a 2008 Toyota 4Runner head on.

The force of the collision flipped the Montero over and it burst into flames. The wrong-way driver was trapped in the blaze and did not survive. The motorist operating the 4Runner was flown to an area medical center with injuries that have been described as life-threatening. Police think that alcohol or drugs may have played a role in the collision.

Unfortunately, this accident has left a man fighting for his life. When people are involved in accidents as serious as this, they may face a long road to recovery. For this reason, they may want to pursue a personal injury lawsuit. By filing a lawsuit, they can seek compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering and more. Moreover, by pursuing a lawsuit, it may be possible to hold negligent drivers accountable for their actions.
