FALLON, NV - An elderly woman from Florida died Wednesday morning in a rollover east of Fallon.

The Nevada Highway Patrol says her husband was driving on Highway 50 near Middlegate when he rolled. She was pronounced dead at the scene; he was flown to Renown in Reno with what troopers say are non-life-threatening injuries.

The victim has been identified as 75-year-old Mary Madsen; her husband is 77-year-old Leslie Madsen.

The cause of the crash hasn't been determined, but troopers say Mr. Madsen is cooperating.

No lanes were shut down during the investigation, as the car rolled off the road.
