Nevada Highway Patrol investigating 215 Beltway crash near airport connector

The Nevada Highway Patrol is investigating a rollover crash that occurred Thursday afternoon on the 215 Beltway near the airport connector.

The crash happened around 3:50 p.m. on the 215 Beltway southbound near Warm Springs Road. The crash involved a silver Mercedes Benz and three other vehicles, trooper Jason Buratzcuk said. The Mercedes Benz landed on its roof, and a white Toyota Solara and a white Ford Explorer have minor damage, he said.

Witness reports indicate a black Ford Explorer, which fled the scene, may have caused the crash, Buratzcuk said.

Two of the five travel lanes were closed following the crash but have since reopened. At this time it is unknown if anyone was injured.

No further information was immediately available.
