LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Nevada Highway Patrol says a wrong-way driver and another man were killed in a collision on Interstate 15 just south of Las Vegas. The wreck occurred Thursday night near Sloan, which is 12 miles (20 kilometers) south of Las Vegas. Trooper Jason Buratczuk said a 42-year-old Primm man driving a sedan northbound in southbound lanes collided with a van driven by a man who also was killed. Identities weren’t released. Buratczuk told the Las Vegas Review-Journal Buratczuk said both vehicles were going about 70 mph and that the crash was “pretty much unsurvivable.” Buratczuk also said the wrong-way car’s headlights were off and that investigators didn’t know if the driver was impairedl. The freeway was reopened about five hours after the crash. A 39-year-old Henderson man died Tuesday morning in a wrong-way crash on I-15 in Las Vegas. The Nevada Department of Transportation is implementing a pilot program to deter wrong-way drivers. The system using a camera and sensor to alert wrong-way drivers with strobe-like beacons on wrong-way signs is being installed at an U.S. 95 off-ramp in the Las Vegas area.
