Road To Pahrump To Reopen After Crash

Authorities are reopening the road to Pahrump.

State Route 160 -- also called Blue Diamond Road -- was shutdown

The closure was caused by a tanker truck that overturned about noon.

The accident happened near Mountain Springs at the base of the pass.

It lead to a traffic backup as authorities cleaned up the debris.

The road is expect to be fully open by about 5 p.m.
