Las Vegas, NV, 11/17/06. A tractor trailer hauling paper products may have been going 60 mph when it slammed into a stop-and-go line of cars proceeding in two lanes through a construction zone on I-15. Four people were killed, five people were hospitalized. The truck driver, identified as Milson Sabino Oliveira Filho, 51, was examined at a local hospital and taken to the Clark County jail, where he was being held on 10 felony charges including involuntary manslaughter and reckless driving,
I’m now participating in a trial of a products liability case in Las Vegas for at least three weeks, and commuting every day to and from the Clark County Courthouse on I-15 past the construction zone where this crash occurred.
