LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Nevada Highway Patrol says one man is dead after crashing the SUV he was driving off Interstate 15 near the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Trooper Jeremie Elliott says the driver was pronounced dead at the scene of the 2 a.m. Monday crash on the northbound freeway about 12 miles northwest of downtown Las Vegas.
Elliott says the motorist was alone, and investigators weren't sure what caused the 1993 Oldsmobile Bravada to veer off the highway before it rolled over in the desert.
The man's name wasn't immediately made public.
