A deadly car crash Saturday night left one person dead and many others injured. It happened on Pyramid Highway near Mccarran Boulevard in Sparks, just before 6:00pm.

Nevada Highway Patrol worked with Sparks police to close the roadway while clearing debris and investigating the cause of the accident. According to an NHP spokesperson, a Dodge Stratus heading south on Pyramid lost control and crossed the centerline, colliding head-on with another vehicle. At least two other vehicles headed north on Pyramid near Queens Way became tangled in the initial crash. Roads were immediately shut down for nearly 3 hours.

Police say the driver of the Stratus was killed at the scene. 5 others were transported to Renown Regional Medical center, their conditions not immediately known. Officers are still investigating the crash and more details are expected to come out Monday morning.
