One person is dead after a Wednesday night crash on Interstate 15 north of Las Vegas.
Nevada Highway Patrol responded at 11:22 p.m. Wednesday to reports of a single-vehicle crash on southbound I-15 near mile marker 64, about 11 miles north of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, spokesman Jason Buratczuk said,
The Chevrolet Trailblazer’s driver, a man, lost control on the Exit 64 offramp, Buratczuk said, sending the truck into the left shoulder, up an embankment and over the guardrail.
Buratczuk said the driver was not wearing a seat belt, and was ejected from the vehicle. He died at the scene.
Highway Patrol investigators believe speed was a factor in the crash, Buratczuk said. It’s unclear whether the man was impaired.
The Clark County Coroner’s office will identify the man who died after his family has been notified.
