Nevada Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal crash in rural northeastern Clark County.

The crash occurred around 6:40 p.m. on northbound Interstate 15 near Mile Marker 104, north of Moapa.

Preliminary investigation revealed that a red Chevrolet Corvette was traveling at a high rate of speed when it left the roadway and entered the west dirt shoulder. The driver overcorrected to the right and the vehicle crossed both northbound travel lanes while rotating clockwise. The Corvette then entered the east dirt shoulder and overturned.

The unrestrained adult male driver was ejected and pronounced deceased on scene. The driver has not yet been identified.

This marks Nevada Highway Patrol-Southern Command's 34th fatal crash for this year resulting in 37 lives lost.
