DAYTON, Nev. (KOLO) - The Nevada Highway Patrol has released the name of a woman killed in a crash on U.S. 50 in Dayton.

Troopers responded about 1:15PM Thursday February 8, 2018 to the head-on crash at the intersection of Retail Road.

The NHP's preliminary investigation indicates the driver of a Ford Expedition SUV was headed east on 50, west of Retail Road, and crossed into eastbound traffic, hitting a Honda Odyssey headed west. The front of the Expedition hit the front of the Honda minivan in the westbound right-hand travel lane.

The driver of the Honda, 60-year-old Nancy Lynn Wise-Ramey of Dayton, died at the scene. The driver of the Expedition was flown to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno with serious injuries. There were no other occupants in either vehicle.

Investigators haven't determined why the driver of the Expedition crossed into oncoming traffic.

If you were a witness to this crash, or have any information about it, you are asked to contact Trooper Jason Litchie of the Nevada Highway Patrol Multi-Disciplinary Investigation and Reconstruction Team (M.I.R.T.) at 775-687-9631 or jdlitchie@dps.state.nv.us regarding NHP Case #180200781.
