The Clark County Coroner’s Office on Tuesday, June 23rd, revealed the name of the motorcyclist who died in a collision in Henderson, Nevada, as Damien Gibbs, 27. The victim passed away on Sunday, June 21st, from multiple blunt force injuries, and the coroner ruled his death an accident.
The accident report disclosed that officers with the Henderson Police at about 5:30 p.m. responded to a collision call in the area of Lowery Street and Boulder Highway. A preliminary investigation revealed that the occurrence involved a GMC pickup truck and a silver 2003 Aprilia motorcycle.
The police said that Gibbs was heading north on Boulder, just west of Lowery when the pickup turned left in front of him, causing the collision. The man died at the scene, and the driver of the vehicle remained and cooperated with the investigators. He showed no signs of impairment, and there’s no report of a citation.
When an accident occurs, the person with liability often has a fight or flight response out of fear of the legal consequences. Rather than panicking and fleeing the scene, drivers should remain, and park their cars at the crash site or the nearest possible place where it won’t impede traffic and place a call to the relevant authorities.
Check for injuries, and try to provide first aid while waiting for first responders to arrive. If the accident involves a stationary object or property, remain at the scene, locate the owner, and exchange license and insurance information.
