LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Boulder City Fire Department and Police Department are on the scene of a plane crash off of U.S. 95 near the 51-mile marker.

The incident is not impacting traffic on U.S. 95.

The FAA has been contacted and will be leading the investigation.

The city extended its "deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the victim."
