The Nevada Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal crash on Interstate 15 near the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Just before 8 a.m., a Ford Explorer was traveling northbound on I-15 at Clark County Mile Marker 55 when it left the inside travel lane and continued through the unpaved center median where it crashed in the dirt, the Highway Patrol said in a news release.
The 75-year-old male driver was the only occupant and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
All travel lanes were open and only minor delays were expected, the Highway Patrol said.
The Clark County coroner’s office will release the identity of the man once next of kin has been notified.
