Three people were hospitalized early Friday morning after a head-on crash near the Las Vegas airport.

Just after 2 a.m. a vehicle traveling the wrong way on Paradise Road just south of Tropicana Avenue crashed into another vehicle, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Jason Johansson said.

The driver of the wrong-way vehicle was hospitalized, as were the driver and passenger in the second vehicle, Johansson said. All three are expected to survive.

At 3 a.m. Friday officers from the Metropolitan Police Department blocked off all but two lanes of Paradise at Gus Giuffre Road. The Regional Transportation Commission reported that all but one lane had reopened at 5 a.m.
