Las Vegas, NV (August 10, 2020) – The driver of a tow truck was killed in an accident on southbound Interstate 15 near the US-93 turnoff on Monday afternoon.
Per reports from the Nevada Highway Patrol, the incident occurred around 3:00 p.m. A preliminary investigation showed that the white Isuzu tow truck, which was carrying a silver SUV, was traveling at a high rate of speed just before the accident. As the truck neared an Army National Guard vehicle, it failed to slow and struck the vehicle.
Authorities are unsure why the Isuzu was traveling at an increased rate of speed. EMTs arrived shortly after the crash occurred, though the driver succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. A photo provided by the NHP appears to show the cab of the tow truck crushed and situated near the Army National Guard vehicle.
The cause of the crash is currently being investigated by local police. No further information is available at this time.
Our deepest condolences go out to the family of the deceased victim.
