LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — One person is dead in a crash involving three vehicles north of Las Vegas, according to the Nevada Highway Patrol.
NHP troopers responded to the crash around 1 p.m. Monday on the southbound I-15 offramp at Las Vegas Boulevard.
According to NHP, a female driver of a Honda CRV was fleeing from a hit-and-run crash that involved a Hyundai Sante Fe near Apex, when she struck a GMC Sierra that was stopped at Las Vegas Boulevard and the I-15.
The woman driving the Honda was transported to UMC Trauma where officials say she succumbed to her injuries.
The crash has closed the I-15 southbound off-ramp at Las Vegas Boulevard as NHP continues their investigation.
The coroner will identify the deceased driver once next of kin has been notified.
