Nyakueth Tear, 18, Accused of Trying to Flee Scene after Hitting Eight Pedestrians with her Car Outside a Church

Monday, August 12th, 2013

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (August 12, 2013) – Nyakueth Tear, 18, was accused of attempting to flee the scene of an accident that she caused after hitting eight pedestrians with her vehicle late last Thursday, according to Police.

The incident occurred at a church, Iglesia de Cristo on Losee Road.  Eight pedestrians were hit by Tear’s white 2000 Mitsubishi Galant. Apparently Tear had been living out of her car for a week prior to the accident. Tear is the mother of a one-year-old son. He is safe in the care of Tear’s mother, according to investigators.

Tear appeared in court via video conference from the Las Vegas City Jail where she is being held. One of the four people injured was a pregnant woman. All the pedestrians were leaving a church service.

“Obviously this is a very young woman that had some personal problems before this incident occurred. It’s terrible that such a large number of people were hit,” states attorney West Seegmiller, owner of The Seegmiller Law Firm in Las Vegas. Mr. Seegmiller has been practicing personal injury law for over 33 years.

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (August 8, 2013) – A woman has lost her life today from injuries she sustained in an accident with a cement truck yesterday. The incident was reported at 10:54 a.m. yesterday near the intersection of Strange Avenue and Cliff Shadows Parkway in northwest Las Vegas, according to Metro police.

A 24-year-old woman was driving her gold sedan northbound on Strange Avenue when she made a left turn at a stop sign onto Cliff Shadows. An oncoming Kentworth cement dump truck slammed into her vehicle, ramming into her driver’s side door. The woman was severely injured and taken to the ER at University Medical Center where she later succumbed to her injuries and died.

“When a semi-truck of any kind, especially a dense cement truck, hits a driver’s side of a vehicle, the potential for severe injury or death is almost certain.” Metro Police are continuing an investigation of the crash.

LAS VEGAS: Motorcyclist Killed in Crash with Car on Desert Inn Road

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (August 1, 2013) – A motorcyclist was killed early Thursday morning after his bike slammed into the back of a car in the westbound lanes of Desert Inn Road in west Las Vegas, according to a report by Fox 5 News.

About 4:30 a.m., police say the motorcycle rider was headed westbound on Desert Inn Road near Tenaya Way when he allegedly rear-ended a car in the roadway, the report said. Paramedics who responded to the scene of the motorcycle crash transported the injured man by ambulance to University Medical Center where he died. The report did not indicate whether anyone in the car was injured.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police officers closed down the road between Buffalo and Tenaya in order to investigate the crash to determine liability for the man’s death.

“The report does not indicate whether the vehicle the rider struck was stopped or moving at the time of the crash,” said Attorney West Seegmiller. “Police will need to determine whether the car had its lights on or was disabled at the time of the fatal crash. Also, they will collect evidence and interview any witnesses to determine any other factors that may have led to the accident.”

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (July 30, 2013) — Investigation into fatal vehicle versus motorcycle collision at the intersection of Durango Drive and Starboard Drive has concluded, according to a press release issued by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

The accident, which occurred on the evening of July 15, saw the death of a 19-year-old male who was riding a 2004 Kawaski ZX636.

According to the press release, Jada Lassiter, 18, of Las Vegas, was traveling northbound on Durango Drive in her 1003 Cadillac Seville attempting to make a left turn on Starboard Drive.

The motorcyclist was traveling southbound, in the middle lane, on Durango Drive.

The report states that “as the Kawasaki entered the intersection, the Cadillac attempted to turn left and was struck on the right side.”

Emergency officials arrived on scene, and paramedics rushed the motorcycle rider to UMC Trauma Center where he was later pronounced dead.

Lassiter and her passenger, a juvenile, were not injured in the accident.

According to the press release, this is the 54th traffic related fatality in Las Vegas in 2013.

Cause of Death of Cirque de Soleil “Ka” Performer, Sarah Guyard, Released by Coroner’s Office

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

 

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (July 3, 2013) – The cause of Ka performer Sarah Guillot-Guyard’s death was released by The Clark County Coroner’s Office today. Guyard fell at least 90 feet from her harness during a June 29th “Ka” show at MGM Grand. Guyard,31, was a French citizen and resident of Las Vegas. Her death was the result of “blunt force trauma” as stated in the Coroner’s report.

Guyard’s death was determined to be an accident.  It could take more than six months for the Nevada Occupational Safety and Health Administration to continue its investigation into how and why the accident occurred. “It is my hope that the NOSHA will determine what happened so MGM Grand and other casinos can prevent fatal accidents in the future,” states Attorney West Seegmiller, owner of The Seegmiller Law Firm.
