After a few relatively quiet months we have another wave of accidents involving pedestrians and motor vehicles. In the past week alone I have read about half a dozen tragic accidents and as a father today’s breaking news really spoke to me. In separate incidents in less than 24 hours two juveniles were hit and injured (but expected to recover) by vehicles. Officer Laura Meltzer said a green pickup truck struck a juvenile just after 7:15 a.m. Thursday at Sahara Avenue east of the Desert Rose Golf Course. Meltzer added a black sedan hit a child about 7:45 p.m. Wednesday night at Decatur Boulevard near the Sahara Pavilion South shopping center.
While it has not yet been determined if the children were using the crosswalk when they were hit I want to caution all drivers to pay extra attention when driving (especially anywhere near children). With the weather warming up and increased daylight hours there will be more people out on and about while we ramp up to the summer months. Take your time and keep your eyes peeled and let’s work to make Nevada accident free.
