62-year-old woman loses her life in a moped crash

Many people in Nevada enjoy riding mopeds. They offer a cheap and easy way to zip around town. Mopeds are popular with people of all ages, from college students to retirees. Unfortunately, operating a moped can sometimes be a very dangerous -- or even deadly --endeavor, as one recent incident shows.

A collision between an automobile and a moped lead to the death of the woman driving the moped. A teenage male, age 17, drove his motor vehicle through a red light at an intersection. Just then, the driver of the moped, a woman, age 62, entered the intersection. She was struck by the automobile. She was taken to an area hospital, but unfortunately did not survive the crash.

The teen stayed at the scene of the crash and as of right now there are no indications that he was impaired by drugs or alcohol when the crash occurred. An 11-year-old occupant of the automobile also sustained injuries that have been described as minor.

This tragic incident serves as a prime example of how important it is for motorists to uphold their duty of care when on the road. They must not drive negligently or recklessly, but instead must drive in a manner that is reasonable under the circumstances. It may go without saying that running a red light violates a motorist's duty of care. Now we have one family in Nevada who will have to move on without their loved one in their life. Dealing with a fatal car accident can be very difficult, both emotionally and financially. Therefore, those who have lost loved ones in fatal motor vehicle crashes may want to determine if they can take legal action against the person responsible for the crash.
