LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Police closed a stretch of Spring Mountain Road early Thursday morning as part of an investigation of suspicious devices that turned out to be harmless.

According to Las Vegas Metro police, officers were called out to a single-vehicle rollover in the area of Spring Mountain and Duneville Street, just east of S. Jones Boulevard, about 2:15 a.m.

Officers there found what appeared to be explosives inside the car, prompting police to set up a perimeter and close Spring Mountain between Jones and Decatur boulevards, according to Metro.

Police said the devices, though, were deemed harmless after a hazardous materials unit found them to pose no danger.

The driver of the vehicle involved in the rollover was taken to University Medical Center with minor injuries.

Officers said alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.

Both directions of Spring Mountain reopened just before 6:30 a.m.
