Three people were killed in a car crash in Henderson on Saturday night.
In a statement, Henderson police said they responded with city firefighters at about 11 p.m. to the two-vehicle crash near the intersection of Stephanie Street and Russell Road.
A person driving a 2005 Jeep Liberty eastbound on Russell drove over a raised median and crashed into a Dodge pickup in oncoming traffic lanes.
The Jeep rolled over onto its roof and caught fire. Both the driver and passenger of the Jeep died at the scene. The pickup’s driver was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center, where he died.
The road was closed for about six hours as investigators worked the scene. It is unclear whether impairment was a factor.
The Clark County coroner’s office will release the names of the people who were killed after family has been notified.
