Nevada Highway Patrol says a fatal crash occurred around 4:45 A.M. on southbound U.S. 95 at the Rainbow Curve.

Witnesses say that a gold Trailblazer was driving recklessly, making unsafe lane changes, and moving at a high speed as it entered the highway.

The driver then reportedly lost control and went off the road, rolled over onto an embankment, and ejected both passenger and driver.

Both were transported to UMC Trauma where the passenger was pronounced dead. The driver is currently in critical condition.

NHP believes impairment was a factor in the crash.
