The Clark County coroner has identified the victim of Sunday's deadly wreck on Interstate 15 at Cheyenne Avenue as Rebecca Steeprow, 31.

The Nevada Highway Patrol (NHP) said that Steeprow was driving a Volkswagen Jetta when she collided with a semi-truck. She was taken to UMC Trauma where she was pronounced dead.

There was no word on other injuries.

According to NHP, witnesses said the Jetta was swerving across multiple lanes prior to colliding with the semi-truck. NHP Troopers suspect alcohol may have been a factor in the accident.

The delays affected the traffic coming from the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. NHP was on scene at the Speedway directing traffic onto the westbound 215 Beltway.

Closures lasted nearly four hours.
