The southbound lanes of I-15 are stopped following a fatal incident involving a pedestrian early Tuesday morning.
The crash occurred about 3 a.m. Southbound I-15 is closed down near Flamingo Road. According to Nevada State Police, the closure might last several hours, affecting morning rush hour.
“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.
According to the Nevada State Police, a person who crossed the interstate was hit several times.
Drivers are being encouraged to take an alternate route. As of 6:30 a.m., traffic jams extend all the way to the Spaghetti Bowl. Drivers must leave at Charleston, Sahara, or Spring Mountain, or just avoid I-15 southbound.
