JEAN (KTNV)  — The Nevada Highway Patrol is investigating a deadly crash on Interstate 15 Monday morning.

Troopers report they were called to a collision just before 7 a .m. on northbound I-15 at mile marker 12 in Jean.

A gray Honda failed to slow down and struck the back of a semi-truck while traveling north on I-15, according to the NHP.

The driver of the Honda was pronounced deceased at the scene with a passenger later dying at a local hospital after being transported with critical injuries.

Authorities reopened southbound travel lanes on I-15 around 8 a.m. but northbound lanes remained closed for the on-scene investigation.
