Summerlin Parkway crash

Westbound Summerlin Parkways was blocked for about three hours after an early-afternoon vehicle rollover left a family of four in a hospital, the Nevada Highway Patrol said.

The incident occurred about 12:26 p.m. near Rampart Boulevard, Trooper Jeremie Elliott said.

The driver lost control of the vehicle just before it rolled over, Trooper Loy Hixson said. The two adults inside were ejected from the vehicle and suffered injuries that were not life-threatening, he said.

The two children in the vehicle also suffered minor injuries.

The family was taken to University Medical Center, Hixson said.

Traffic was diverted onto the ramp during the closure, Elliott said.

    Unless it was done intentionally, that's usually how it happens. It sounds like the adults weren't wearing seat belts.
