I-80 Accident Kills 2 In Northern Nevada

Two people have been killed in a single-vehicle accident on Interstate 80 about 10 miles west of Wells.

The Nevada Highway Patrol says 21-year-old Joshua Warner of Carson City and 19-year-old Hannah Puente of Reno were pronounced
dead at the scene Saturday.

Troopers say Warner was behind the wheel when his westbound vehicle drifted off the roadway, hit a road marker, went down an embankment and rolled several times.

They say it appears both occupants were wearing seat belts.

The 7 a.m. accident is under investigation.
