In Las Vegas, Nevada, and across the United States, it is pivotal for those who have been hurt because of the negligence of another to properly address their set of circumstances. Sadly, far too many Americans have been injured in a car accident or other mishap that was caused by reckless behavior and it is essential for these victims to stand up for their rights.

A recent auto collision on Buffalo Drive in Las Vegas left multiple people injured. The accident is still being investigated by authorities, who apprehended a 40-year-old woman suspected of drunk driving and causing the car accident. The crash took place on a Friday at roughly 9:20 p.m.

Officials say the woman failed to stop at a light before she slammed into a vehicle that was carrying a number of people. Multiple people who were riding in the vehicle struck by the alleged intoxicated driver were hurt, including the vehicle’s driver, a 16-year-old who was thrown from the car and other young people who were riding along.
