Driver Caused a Fatal Accident after Ignoring No-Passing Zone Sign

The initial investigation indicates a direct crash that killed four people in northeast Nevada. The fatal accident happened over the weekend. It was caused by a driver who was trying to pass in a no-passing zone on a two-lane highway south of Wells.

The Nevada Highway Patrol reported that a silver 2019 Subaru Impreza with Oregon plates was driving north on U.S. 93 sometime before noon Saturday when it crossed the double yellow, no-passing line attempting to pass another vehicle.

The Subaru hit head-on with a southbound silver 2019 Hyundai Sonata with Idaho plates about 25 miles south of Wells.

The drivers and one passenger in each of the vehicles were pronounced dead at the scene. For now, the police have not released the victims’ identities.

The highway was closed in both ways for several hours. The accident is still under investigation.

Fatal accidents are devastating and heartbreaking for the family of the victim. There is nothing in the world that could soothe their sadness, but the law gives people the right to file a lawsuit and seek compensation claims in such cases.

Going through a tragedy like this can be a burden for your finances, and the claim may significantly help you move on with your life.

If you have lost a loved one in such circumstances, don’t lose time and act fast. Nevada’s statute of limitations for car accidents is only two years from the date of the death.

You would need a skilled car accident attorney who has worked on such cases. They will help you with the lawsuit, gather the required evidence, and prepare your case.
