One person died and a highway was closed after a rollover crash in Henderson on Thursday night.

The Nevada Highway Patrol was called at 8:09 p.m. to the westbound 215 Beltway at Valle Verde Drive, where a BMW 228 had rolled into the rocks, according to trooper Jason Buratczuk.

Westbound 215 was closed at Valle Verde for firefighters to access the highway, Buratczuk said.
