One person was killed in a three-vehicle crash on Interstate 15 Tuesday afternoon.

At around 2:40 p.m. three vans were heading north on I-15, south of Cheyenne Avenue in the far-right lane. A white Nissan van drove into the back of another white Nissan van causing that van to hit a black Dodge van, according to Nevada Highway Patrol spokeswoman Ashlee Wellman.

The man driving the van that caused the crash was taken to University Medical Center where he died. Two other people were taken to UMC after suffering injuries that were not life threatening, Wellman said.

The man who died was identified by the Clark County coroner’s office as Thomas Otken, 54.
