LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The Nevada Highway Patrol on Monday night confirmed a semitrailer truck rolled over onto a 2006 Nissan sedan, claiming the life of a passenger and the driver of that car.

The accident occurred at 8:35 p.m. on Interstate 15 in a southbound lane, near the St. Rose Parkway exit.

The NHP believes the vehicles collided, and the impact was so great both flew across the interstate onto the St. Rose ramp. The Nissan is so damaged rescue crews are unsure if there is another victim inside.

The truck driver sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

Troopers do not yet know how the wreck occurred.

The ramp was closed until about 8 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Stay tuned to FOX5 for the latest on this developing story.
