A man and a young child were ejected from a van that rolled over on southbound Interstate 15 today, restricting traffic near the Lamb Boulevard exit for more than three hours.
The man was driving an Chevrolet Astrovan north on I-15 with a young child passenger about 9:45 a.m. when he lost control, according to the Nevada Highway Patrol.
The vehicle went across the median and rolled into southbound I-15, Trooper Loy Hixson said.
The man, who was not wearing a seat belt, and child, who was improperly strapped into a car seat, were thrown from the van, Hixson said.
The man was in critical condition, while the child suffered non-life-threatening injuries, officials said. Both were transported to University Medical Center.
Troopers shut down southbound and northbound lanes in the area around Lamb Boulevard. Northbound lanes were open shortly before noon, and all southbound lanes were reopened by 1:20 p.m.
No other vehicles appeared to have been involved in the crash.
