Three people were killed in a crash around 11 p.m. near Stephanie Street and Russell Road Saturday.

Henderson Police say that a 2005 Jeep Liberty was traveling east on Russell Road when it crossed the raised median and hit a 2011 Dodge truck.

The Jeep then rolled onto its roof and went up in flames. The driver and passenger died at the scene.

The driver of the Dodge was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police believe the Jeep was speeding, but don't know if drugs or alcohol was involved. 

The Clark County coroner will identify the deceased after relatives have been notified.
