NSP identified the incident as a fatal crash on I-15 southbound near Charleston Boulevard, but a public information officer could not immediately be reached for more information.

The on-ramp to I-15 southbound at Pinto Lane (less than a mile north of Charleston) was closed for approximately two hours, but had reopened as of 7 a.m.
