LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — State Police say the driver of a work truck who lost control and crashed, closing lanes of the southbound I-15 during Friday’s rush hour, is facing a DUI charge.

Xavier A. Carter, 26, is scheduled to appear in court Saturday on the DUI charge and failing to maintain his lane, according to records.

Nevada State Police Highway Patrol said the driver of a truck carrying welding equipment lost control on the interstate near Flamingo Road at about 5 p.m.

All lanes of southbound I-15 at Flamingo were closed as troopers investigated, according to the Nevada Department of Transportation. A crew also was called to make sure hazardous materials were not spilled in the crash.

According to State Police, the driver was hauling welding equipment and welding tank canisters at the time of the crash. He ended up hitting a freeway wall after losing control and was taken to University Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

The roadway was partially closed until after 8 p.m., with some lanes open about 90 minutes earlier.

The incident occurred just five hours before a major closure along I-15 for a construction project on Tropicana.

The freeway will completely close down late Friday starting at 10 p.m. between Flamingo and Russell roads and won’t reopen until Monday, Jan. 30, at 5 a.m., according to the Nevada Department of Transportation.

That closure is expected to continue as scheduled on Friday night.
