MOAPA (KTNV) -- A woman died in a crash on northbound Interstate 15 near Moapa Wednesday afternoon.

Around 4:30 p.m., Nevada Highway Patrol troopers responded to a single-vehicle rollover near Mile Marker 78 involving a red Toyota 4-runner that went into the median.

One female passenger was ejected and pronounced dead at the scene. Another male passenger was airlifted to University Medical Center in serious condition.

The female driver and another female passenger were transported to University Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

I-15 was briefly closed waiting for a helicopter to land.

Impairment does not appear to be a factor.
