Driver Arrested After Fatal Pedestrian Collision in North Las Vegas [Las Vegas, GA]

In a tragic event this past Sunday, a driver was taken into custody on charges of driving under the influence (DUI) after a fatal pedestrian collision in North Las Vegas. According to the North Las Vegas Police Department, the incident occurred around 8:30 p.m. near the intersection of Cheyenne Avenue and Martin Luther King Boulevard.

The victim, a 67-year-old woman, was attempting to cross Cheyenne Avenue just east of the intersection and outside of a marked crosswalk when she was struck by a vehicle. Sadly, she was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency responders.

The driver involved in the collision, identified as 29-year-old Luis Alvarado Lopez, remained at the scene and exhibited signs of impairment.

Following a field sobriety test, Lopez was arrested and subsequently booked at the North Las Vegas Community Correctional Center on charges of DUI resulting in death and reckless driving resulting in death. The Clark County Coroner’s Office will release the identity of the deceased woman after notifying her next of kin.

In cases of fatal pedestrian collisions like this, the victim’s family may be entitled to various forms of compensation. These compensations can help cover the financial and emotional burden that such a sudden and tragic loss brings.

Primarily, the family may seek compensation for medical expenses incurred before the victim’s death, funeral and burial costs, and the loss of financial support that the deceased may have contributed to the household.

Additionally, compensation may cover non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, loss of companionship, and emotional distress experienced by the surviving family members.

The victim’s family must understand their rights and the full extent of the compensation they are entitled to under the law. This is where expert legal assistance becomes invaluable.
