A rollover accident involving a mobile detail truck Thursday night shut down southbound Las Vegas Boulevard at Russell Road.

The rollover occurred about 10 p.m. when a truck lost control with a trailer and flipped, Metro Police Lt. Erik Lloyd said. Two of the three occupants of the truck suffered nonlife-threatening injuries and were taken to University Medical Center. One of them was ejected from the truck in the accident.

Lloyd said all southbound Las Vegas Boulevard traffic is shut down from Russell to the Welcome to Las Vegas sign while police investigate the scene.
