The Nevada Highway Patrol reports two big-rig tractor-trailers were involved in a fatal head-on crash around 3am near Hoover Dam and the Mike O’Callaghan / Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge on US93/I-11.
According to NHP Trooper Travis Smaka, one of the trucks was driving northbound in the southbound lanes. He says Arizona authorities alerted Nevada about the situation, but the crash happened before the wrong-way driver was removed from the freeway.
Smaka reports a large diesel fuel spill in the area will take a while to clear, so the road will remain closed for an unknown amount of time.
