4 people died, 2 others hospitalized after a wrong-way crash on I-15 near Las Vegas (Las Vegas, NV)

4 people lost their lives and two others were injured following a wrong-way crash Monday night in the southbound lanes of I-15 near Las Vegas.

As per the initial information, at least six vehicles were involved in the wreck. At about 6 p.m., a red Cadillac was driving north in the southbound lane when it crashed into a Toyota pickup. Due to the impact, the Toyota burst into flames, and three people inside were declared dead at the scene by the officials.

The driver of the Cadillac, a woman, also succumbed to her injuries at the scene. Alcohol was possibly a factor for the driver traveling the wrong way. At least four other vehicles veered to avoid the collision, and two people were transported to University Medical Center with non-critical injuries.

The Regional Transportation Commission stated that the interstate was blocked at Sloan Road (Milepost 25). Officials asked motorists to expect delays in the area. All traffic was being rerouted toward Las Vegas Boulevard at Sloan. No other details are available.

The wreck remains under review.
