LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Tropicana Avenue in east Las Vegas was reopened Monday afternoon after a serious crash involving five vehicles shut it down for almost seven hours.

Las Vegas Metro police reported the crash near the corner of Tropicana and Sandhill Road Monday morning.

Two people were transported to Las Vegas-area medical facilities. One person was hospitalized in critical condition. The other victim only suffered minor injuries.

According to police, a chain reaction of crashes was set off when a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon traveling eastbound on Tropicana hit the rear of a 2002 Chevrolet Corvette. In all, the accident involved three cars, an SUV and a semi-truck. Three of those involved required no immediate medical attention.

Both directions of Tropicana between Sandhill and Salida Drive was closed up until before 3:30 p.m.
