A fatal accident this morning on U.S. 95 near Indian Springs led to a subsequent five-car pileup as traffic was being diverted around the original wreck, officials with the Nevada Highway Patrol said.

Non-life-threatening injuries were reported in the second crash, but no details were immediately available, police said.

The initial crash happened about 5:10 a.m. when a pickup truck and a four-door sedan collided head-on, Trooper Loy Hixson said.

The driver of the sedan was pronounced dead at the scene, he said. The driver of the pickup truck was transported to University Medical Center in critical condition, Hixson said.

The accident is under investigation.
