LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The southbound lanes of I-15 reopened after a nearly 11-hour closure following a deadly crash early Tuesday morning involving a pedestrian.

The crash was reported around 3 a.m. and southbound I-15 is closed at Flamingo Road. Nevada State Police warned the closure would be in place for several hours and it did impact traffic throughout the day.

“The highway is never a place for any pedestrian. We have vehicles traveling at 65 mph so please never ever be on the highway if you’re a pedestrian,” said Ashley Wellman, Nevada State Police.

Nevada State Police said a pedestrian walked onto the freeway and was hit by multiple vehicles.

Wellman said all drivers remained on the scene and cooperated with the investigation. At this time, impaired driving is not suspected.

Motorists were asked to find an alternate route.
