Negligent Truck Driver? 28-Year-Old Ahmad Yakub Critically Injured and 25-Year-Old Passenger Killed By Semi-Truck in Las Vegas Near Lamb Boulevard and Alto Avenue

Posted By Danny Dalton | June 21 2022 | Truck Accidents

Monday night at around 10:00 p.m., Ahmad Yakub and his 25-year-old passenger were driving in a 2003 Ford Escape traveling north on Lamb Boulevard in the Northeast Valley of Las Vegas. At the same time, a Kenworth TT semi-truck was traveling south on Lamb Boulevard, preparing to make a left turn onto Alto Avenue. The semi-truck crossed into Ford’s path causing a serious accident.

Identifying Contributing Factors:

Legal contributor Attorney Brian Mickelsen, an experienced truck accident lawyer, represents victims injured or killed in semi-truck accidents. Below, Attorney Mickelsen shared his insight into the legal options available to victims injured in commercial truck accidents.

“On one hand, it appears the semi-truck was at-fault for crossing into the path of the Ford Escape. On the other hand, police booked the driver of the Ford Escape for potentially driving while intoxicated. Simply because a driver is intoxicated does not necessarily establish that his intoxication caused or contributed to the crash. In these types of cases, it is critically important to involve a toxicologist as well as an accident reconstructionist.”
