Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- One person was killed Tuesday morning in a crash on U.S. 95 near Auto Show Drive in the southeastern part of the Valley.
Nevada Highway Patrol Troopers were called to the scene just before 2:30 a.m.

The driver of the Fiat was killed. The driver of the Mazda was taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition.
Witnesses said the driver of the Fiat drove several miles before crashing into the Mazda. Troopers were en route to attempt to stop the driver when the crash happened.
