CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - A 65-year-old woman from Washington is dead after a rollover crash in the Washoe Valley north of Carson City.
Nevada Highway Patrol officials say the woman was killed in the crash about 6 p.m. Monday on alternate U.S. Route 395, near Bowers Mansion. Her name hasn't yet been released.
