LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- A crash in the Spaghetti Bowl caused traffic delays during the morning commute Wednesday.

According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, the Nevada Highway Patrol was on the scene of a traffic collision about 6:15 a.m. that occurred earlier on southbound U.S. 95 south of Interstate 15 in the Spaghetti Bowl.

All lanes reopened just before 9 a.m.

An NHP vehicle was struck in a secondary crash as troopers were attending to the original crash on U.S. 95, the NHP said. The driver was not arrested, but received a citation for failing to move over for an emergency vehicle.

The officer was not in the vehicle at the time and was not injured, according to NHP.

It was the fifth collision in which a NHP was struck in the last four weeks.
