Nevada Highway Patrol reported two fatal accidents occurred on Interstate 15 Sunday morning.

Troopers responded to a vehicle rollover crash on southbound I-15 near mile marker 100 just after 6 a.m.

NHP said a Toyota 4Runner rolled over on the highway and the driver was ejected from the vehicle. 

The man behind the wheel was pronounced deceased at the scene by medical personnel according to the Nevada Highway Patrol.

Authorities said the incident remains under investigation and it is not known if speed was a factor in the crash at this time.  

Troopers then responded to another fatal accident scene on I-15 near Flamingo Road just before 8 a.m.

This crash involved a pedestrian and a Toyota Camry according to NHP.

A man was trying to cross the travel lanes of the highway, before he was struck by a vehicle in the southbound lane of I-15.

Troopers said the pedestrian died at the scene and the driver of the Camry was transported to Sunrise Hospital with minor injuries.  

The Nevada Department of Transportation confirmed travel restrictions in the area and a closure of I-15 southbound at Spring Mountain Road.

Authorities said it is unclear as to why the man was attempting to cross the highway on foot at this time, and the incident remains under investigation.

The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada updated travel conditions on I-15 just after 11 a.m.
