US 95 at Jones reopens after 4-vehicle crash

Updated December 7, 2018 - 8:50 am

A four-vehicle crash on southbound U.S. Highway 95 in the central Las Vegas Valley closed all but one lane of the freeway on Friday morning.

The crash, which was reported about 6:20 a.m. just south of the Jones Boulevard exit on U.S. 95, sent one person to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening, according to Nevada Highway Patrol spokesman Travis Smaka.

As of 8:30 a.m., traffic cameras showed the crash cleared and all lanes were open.

Further details surrounding the crash were not immediately available, but Smaka said, “Given the weather conditions, I guarantee that played a part.”

Valley roads were slick Friday morning due to what the National Weather Service was calling “spotty showers,” which were expected to taper off by late Friday morning.
