LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A woman is dead after a crash involving a commercial concrete pumping truck on the 215 east of Sky Pointe Drive in the northwest part of Las Vegas, according to Nevada Highway Patrol.

As of 11:30 a.m., all lanes are open again in the area after several hours of closures.

Authorities say, around 6:15 a.m., the driver of the commercial vehicle was in the far right lane of the 215 working on the vehicle because it had broken down. A white Ford Fiesta was also traveling in the right lane and, for unknown reasons, did not see the truck.

NHP says the Fiesta did not stop and crashed into the back of the truck.

The driver was pronounced dead on the scene. Her identity and cause of death will be released by the coroner's office.

A passenger in the Fiesta was transported to University Medical Center Trauma in critical condition.

Authorities say the driver of the truck remained on the scene and is cooperating. Troopers do not believe drugs or alcohol were factors at this time.
