Nevada Highway Patrol responded to a fatal crash on Interstate-15 near Primm late Friday night.

According to NHP, a 2018 Infiniti Q50 was being driven recklessly on 1-15 northbound near mile marker 9 and the driver quickly lost control of the car. The vehicle went off road and into the desert, which caused it to overturn.

The crash occurred at 11:15 p.m. A man and a woman, both in their 20s, were ejected from the vehicle, NHP said. Both were declared dead on scene.

Investigators were working to figure out who was driving the car, according to NHP. It was unknown if impairment was a factor, but the pair were not wearing seatbelts. Witnesses told NHP the driver was speeding and attempted to change lanes before the crash.

No road closures were put in place, NHP said. Motorists were advised to use caution while driving through the area as troopers investigated.

These were the first of three deaths from crashes around the Las Vegas Valley overnight.
