A driver is facing a reckless driving charge following a deadly crash near Boulder City Thursday morning, according to NHP.
The crash happened around 7:30 a.m. on US93 when a Chevy sedan struck a Ford pickup truck attempting to cross the southbound lanes of US93.
The driver of the pickup was killed and the driver of the Chevy was transported to Sunrise Hospital with non life-threatening injuries, NHP said.
