An 80-year-old driver may have had a medical episode Monday when he struck a vacant vehicle on Interstate 15 and later died after the crash.

According to Trooper Chelsea Stuenkel, of Nevada Highway Patrol, the incident was reported at 6:15 a.m. on southbound I-15 just past the Spaghetti Bowl interchange.

The driver hit another pickup truck that had been vacant on the shoulder, Stuenkel said.

The driver was taken from the scene in an ambulance but died on the way to the hospital, according to NHP.

There were no other injuries reported. The crash did not prompt traffic delays.
