A two-vehicle crash in Henderson killed one person and shut down traffic Thursday evening, according to city police.

The crash was reported about 5:40 p.m. on Pecos Road, just north of Wigwam Parkway, Officer Rodrigo Peña said.

The impact made one of the vehicles hit a pole and roll over, Peña said. It wasn’t immediately clear which vehicle the victim was in.
