HENDERSON, NV — Authorities say a head-on fatal crash involving two tractor-trailer rigs closed U.S. 93/Interstate 11 in both directions in southern Nevada about two miles from the Arizona border.

It's not immediately known how many people were killed in the Tuesday morning wreck and other details on the wreck on the highway that is the main link between Phoenix and Las Vegas weren't released.

The Nevada Highway Patrol says it took a while for the highway to reopen because of the need to clean up a large diesel spill and debris.
