Earlier today a stolen Toyota RAV4 allegedly crashed into a Hyundai SUV, killing the Hyundai driver and a passenger in the Toyota. The collision occurred at the intersection of Pecos Road and the westbound I-215 off-ramp. Witnesses reported that the Toyota had been speeding on Pecos and ran red lights before ramming into the Hyundai. The Nevada Highway Patrol believe the Toyota driver was impaired.
"It appears that the family of the Hyundai driver may have a wrongful death case against the Toyota driver," commented Las Vegas personal injury attorney Michael Becker. "In these car accident cases, the victim's family has the burden to prove by a preponderance of the evidence that the driver acted with negligence. If successful, the family can win significant compensatory and punitive damages."
