A 2004 Toyota Corolla overturned after entering the rock-centered center median, before sliding into the path of a 2018 Kia Soul driven by a 59-year-old Las Vegas man, according to a Metropolitan Police Department press release.

The Toyota was driven by a 22-year-old Las Vegas man, with the 19-year-old woman as a passenger.

Both drivers suffered minor injuries. The driver of the Toyota stayed at the scene and did not show signs of impairment. The collision remained under investigation, according to the release.

The Regional Transportation Commission said at 7:10 p.m. that Las Vegas Boulevard North reopened at Walnut Road in both directions.
