LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- Three people were killed and four were injured about 4:30 a.m. today in a wrong-way crash of two vehicles on Interstate 15 near the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Nevada State Patrol Trooper Jeremie Elliott said a gold Acura was headed northbound in the southbound lanes of I-15 and collided with a white GMC Yukon.

"We haven't figured out why he was headed in the wrong direction," Elliott said. "We got a call from somebody who saw him going the wrong way near Lamb and then a few minutes later we got reports of the crash."

A man driving the Acura was killed at the scene as was a man driving the Yukon and a female passenger, Elliott said.

Four passengers in the Yukon suffered injuries that are not life-threatening. They were transported to UMC Trauma.

The identities of the three killed along with the exact cause of their deaths will be released by the Clark County coroner's office.
