Law enforcement officers are seeking the public’s help locating a small white van involved in a fatal collision with a tow truck driver in the southwest valley late Tuesday.

The Nevada Highway Patrol released a stock photo of a Ford Econoline several hours after the tow truck driver was struck and killed by a vehicle while working on the shoulder of the 215 Beltway in the southern valley.

Investigators believe a Ford Econoline van struck a tow truck driver, who was standing on the side of the road, before driving off, according to NHP.

The crash occurred on the westbound side of the Beltway near the Decatur Boulevard exit.
