Oil spill closes ramp at 215 Beltway and I-15

An oil spill has closed the off-ramp from the westbound 215 Beltway to Interstate 15 South, causing traffic delays.

The Nevada Highway Patrol closed the ramp about 7:30 a.m.

The oil spill caused a two-car collision, but no one was injured, Trooper Jeremie Elliott said.

There is no indication where the oil came from. The Nevada Department of Transportation has been called to clean up the spill, Elliott said. There is no timetable for when the ramp will reopen.
