Updated May 6, 2017 - 9:27 am

Northbound Interstate 15 at Lamb Boulevard has reopened after an early morning traffic crash that left a 24-year-old man dead.

All lanes were shut down for about six hours Saturday.

About 3:40 a.m., a silver Nissan Sentra, driven by a 24-year-old male, later identified as Alejandro Aguilar of North Las Vegas, was traveling southbound in I-15’s northbound lanes near Apex, Nevada Highway Patrol trooper Jason Buratczuk said.

Just after mile marker 52, the Nissan hit a semitrailer head-on. The semitrailer was carrying strawberries and was headed from California to New Jersey, Buratczuk said.

The semitrailer’s driver had minor injuries, was not hospitalized and did not appear impaired.

Aguilar was pronounced dead at the scene, Buratczuk said.

It is unknown whether impairment was a factor in the crash.
