Sun coverage

A man was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after crashing his car into a police vehicle early Sunday on Interstate 15, causing the closure of three lanes for several hours.

Nevada Highway Patrol officers were dispatched to investigate a single-vehicle rollover near the Charleston Boulevard exit on I-15 a little after 3 a.m. Sunday, when a man driving a four-door Volvo crashed into a trooper's vehicle, NHP spokesman Loy Hixson said. Both vehicles spun into the interstate after the collision, causing the closure of three lanes until 7 a.m., Hixson said.

The trooper and the Volvo driver were sent to a local hospital after the collision, and both were released Sunday morning. The identity of the trooper has not been released.
