One person died in a highway construction accident Tuesday morning, Nevada Highway Patrol has confirmed.

Trooper Joseph Fackrell said the accident happened about 6:30 a.m. on state Route 160 near Interstate 15 and involved a front-end loader. It appears the accident happened off the roadway.

There are no road closures at this time, Fackrell said. It's unclear which police agency will be handling the investigation.
