ORIGINAL | Authorities are responding to a deadly crash Tuesday morning on U.S. 95 near Boulder City.

Nevada Highway Patrol says the crash was reported just before 4:20 a.m. on the northbound side at Clark County mile marker 54, just south of Interstate 11.

The crash involved a passenger car and tractor trailer.

The car was travelling the wrong way, according to NHP. The driver of the tractor trailer attempted to avoid the car, but the car struck the rear of the trailer so hard that it dislodged the trailer's wheels.

The driver of the car, a 27-year-old woman, was killed. The driver of the tractor trailer escaped without injury.

The northbound side of the highway has reopened after being closed for the response and investigation.
