LAS VEGAS -- Nevada Highway Patrol is investigating a double-fatal accident on the eastbound Summerlin Parkway just east of Town Center.
The highway is closed in that area and drivers are advised to use other routes.
NHP says two people died in a head on crash involving two vehicles.
The crash happened at 4:23 p.m.
According to NHP, this crash involved a pickup truck and a smaller vehicle.
The pickup was in the west bound lanes on the Summerlin Parkway and crossed over the medium into the east bound lanes where it then collided with the smaller auto.
A female driver and a male passenger of the smaller car died at the scene.
The driver of the pickup was taken to UMC in critical condition. NHP said alcohol could have been a factor but could not confirm this.
Summerlin Parkway eastbound will be shut down for hours as officials investigate.
