LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
One man is dead, after crashing his vehicle on I-15 early Saturday morning.
The accident happened just before 1 a.m. on I-15 south between Charleston and Sahara.
Nevada Highway Patrol says the driver of a Honda Civic was traveling southbound in the center lane when he steered left, then over corrected the steering to the right. The vehicle then spun across multiple lanes before striking the barrier wall along the west paved shoulder. The impact rebounded the car back into the travel lanes of I-15 southbound.
The driver of the Honda Civic has been identified as 20-year-old Jesus Hernandez of North Las Vegas, NV. NHP says Hernandez was not wearing a seat belt and was pronounced dead at the scene. There were no other occupants inside the vehicle.
NHP says the accident may have been caused by another vehicle. The vehicle is described as possibly being a white passenger car which continued south on IR-15. Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact the Nevada Highway Patrol Major Accident Investigation Team at 702-432-5219.
