Fatal crash shuts down U.S. 93 near Arizona-Nevada border

- Department of Public Safety troopers were at the scene of a deadly crash along U.S. 93 near the Arizona-Nevada border on Tuesday.

Two people have been killed and three others were injured in the collision that may have involved as many as eight vehicles.

Drivers heading to the Las Vegas area are being told to use an alternate route as the road was expected to be closed for several hours. All traffic was turned around to go south on 93.

The Arizona Department of Transportation suggested taking a detour on State Route 68 to Laughlin and Nevada 163, U.S. 95 to Las Vegas.

The closure was in effect from the Hoover Dam south to Kingman. Just after 7:00 p.m., both lanes of  northbound U.S. 93 at milepost 27 north of Kingman reopened, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. 

No names have been released in this case.
