Wrong-Way Drivers Reported Everyday In Southern Nevada

Southern Nevada highways are seeing more than one wrong-way driver per day, according to the Nevada Highway Patrol.

It's a number that NHP Public Information Officer Jason Buratczuk calls "sobering," reports KSNV TV Channel 3. 

Troopers with NHP southern command have been dispatched to 384 wrong-way calls so far in 2019.

It's a number that's on track to be lower than 2018's total of 443, but recent crashes in Southern Nevada have put the problem in the spotlight.

They include a car colliding head-on with a truck and an express van smashing into a car near Jean.
