LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Nevada Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal crash Thursday morning in the south valley.

NHP Trooper Travis Smaka said the crash happened around 6:10 a.m. on northbound I-11 and the Horizon Drive on-ramp. 

Smaka said the SUV involved was traveling northbound in the left travel lane when it overcorrected, crossing all northbound lanes. Smaka said the vehicle then rolled over when it hit a rocky area and came to a rest in the shoulder east of the on-ramp.

The male driver was ejected from the vehicle during the crash, Smaka said. He was taken to a hospital where he later died.

The Clark County Coroner's Office has identified the victim as Terrell Eugene Brown, 33, from Las Vegas. He died of multiple blunt force injuries in an accident, according to the coroner. 

Witnesses of the crash told police the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed before the crash, Smaka said. It was too early to tell if impairment was a factor Thursday morning.

Northbound I-11 was closed at College Drive in Henderson for investigation.

Additional details weren't immediately available.
