LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The northbound lanes of U.S. 95 have reopened after being closed for more than three hours Wednesday morning as Nevada Highway Patrol investigated a crash involving a tractor-trailer and pedestrian.
The northbound lanes were closed at Las Vegas Boulevard and motorists were diverted off the freeway at Eastern Avenue. The closure caused some major traffic backups.
The man was struck by the big rig around 4 a.m. and was transported to University Medical Center. His condition has not been released.
