Two Idaho men are dead after an accident in Las Vegas.

Officials say Christopher Markley and Robert Barnes were stopped by a flagger in a construction zone when a semi-truck rear-ended them. Police say both men were ejected from the car before the truck smashed into three other vehicles in the construction zone.

The driver of the truck admitted he was asleep at the wheel and woke up just seconds before the crash.

Markley and Barnes were both pronounced dead at the scene.
