1 dead after single-car crash on state Route 164 near Searchlight

A single-car rollover crash near Searchlight left a woman dead after she was ejected from the vehicle Friday morning.

The crash happened at 6:15 a.m. on state Route 164 near mile marker 13, according to Nevada Highway Patrol trooper Jason Buratczuk.

A silver Toyota Camry was westbound on the highway when it crashed off the roadway. The driver, the sole occupant of the vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to NHP.

It is unknown where impairment was a factor, Buratczuk said.

There are no road closures, but debris in the roadway is causing some traffic tie-ups, according to NHP.

The Clark County coroner will identify the deceased person once her familly has been notified.
