INDIAN SPRINGS, Nev. (KTNV)  — Nevada State Police say a fatal crash happened at US-95 going southbound near Creech Air Force Base.

According to police, a tan Chevy Tahoe was going southbound on US-95 just north of MM126 before traveling into the left dirt shoulder.

The far-left travel lane on the northbound and southbound sides are closed pending the completion of the investigation. Police say they believe the closure will be lifted in roughly two hours as of 4:39 p.m.
