LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - One person was killed when a tow truck slammed into another vehicle on the southbound side of I-15 near Apex yesterday afternoon.

NHP believes that excessive speed is to blame for the crash, and a picture tweeted out by Nevada Highway Patrol seems to bear that out, showing the cab of the tow truck completely crushed.

The driver of the National Guard truck that was struck wasn't hurt. The indentity of the tow truck driver hasn't been released.

Traffic was tied up for hours for those heading into the valley on 15 South as NHP continued to investigate.
