A man was ejected and killed late Saturday night in a single-vehicle crash just west of Interstate 15 in Jean.

Leovigildo Morales-Gomez, 25, died of his injuries, the Clark County coroner’s office said.

A second person in the car was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.

About 9:50 p.m., the vehicle left the roadway for unknown reasons on Goodsprings Road at mile marker 5 in Jean, according to the Nevada State Police.

The car overturned and one person was ejected.

SR161 (Goodsprings Road) was closed in both directions in the area, and the estimated time to reopen is not known.

Motorists are asked to use an alternate route and avoid the area.
