Perhaps to be expected just into the new year, Las Vegas police and first responders were dealing with more than a dozen injury accidents in the first hours of 2021.

From midnight until 5:30 a.m. Friday, there were at least 14 injury crashes across the Las Vegas Valley, according to listings on the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and Nevada Highway Patrol websites.

The most recent one was at 5:11 a.m. at U.S. 95 and Eastern Avenue, according to the Nevada Highway Patrol.

Las Vegas police Lt. Esmerala Boveda said in a text at 3:50 a.m. that she had no reports of major injuries in the 11 crashes that Metro was investigating.
