2 Injured in Fiery 2-Vehicle Crash in Summerlin
LAS VEGAS, NV (June 30, 2020) – Two people sustained injuries in a fiery crash on Charleston Boulevard and Desert Foothills Drive in Summerlin on Sunday.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said the incident involved a midsize SUV and a motorcycle.
An initial investigation showed that the two vehicles collided at about 10:30 a.m. Both were engulfed in flames after the impact. Fortunately, the firefighters were able to extinguish the fire within seconds.
The motorcycle rider suffered moderate injuries and received treatment at a hospital. An occupant of the SUV also possibly burned one foot but did not require immediate transport to a hospital.
The police closed the intersection of Charleston Boulevard and Desert Foothills Drive while they investigated. The roadway reopened after several hours.
When driving, it is important to keep an eye out for motorcyclists. Check all your mirrors and blind spots for motorcycles before merging with traffic or changing lanes, especially at intersections. Also, allow more following distance when behind a motorcycle. This gives them more time to react or stop in case of an emergency. If you are riding a motorcycle, do not underestimate the bike’s speed. Use hand and turn signals when you change lane or turn. To increase visibility, wear brightly colored clothes and reflective tape.
