LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- The southbound lanes of U.S. 95 between Las Vegas Boulevard and Eastern Avenue are currently closed to traffic because of a crash involving a semi truck and an abandoned vehicle.

The crash was reported at 3:43 a.m. Friday.

Nevada Highway Patrol says the driver of the truck was not injured, but it will take some time to clear. The crash resulted in the abandoned vehicle being pushed into a wall and causing it to collapse into someone's yard below.

Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes.
