Both people who were killed Tuesday in a crash on the new Interstate 11 Boulder City bypass have been identified.

Christopher Levo, 63, of Milford, Ohio, was killed after he attempted a U-turn within the northbound lanes of I-11 and hit a Ford Ranger head-on, the Nevada Highway Patrol said.

The passenger of the SUV died at the scene the Highway Patrol said. He was identified by the Clark County coroner’s office as 64-year-old Steve Mondy, also of Milford.

Levo died at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center, according to officials. Two people inside the Ranger were also hospitalized.

The 15-mile stretch of I-11 opened last week.
