LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Nevada Highway Patrol says two people are dead and a third person is hospitalized after a two-vehicle crash on a state highway west of Las Vegas.
Trooper Kevin Honea says a female driver and male passenger were pronounced dead at the scene after their Toyota Corolla pulled from a service station into the path of a Ford F-350 pickup truck about 10:30 a.m. Friday on Highway 160 just west of Highway 159.
The driver of the pickup was hospitalized with injuries that Honea says didn't appear life-threatening.
The names of the dead and injured weren't immediately made public.
Honea says investigators think the woman driving the Toyota failed to yield right-of-way to the pickup on the highway, where the speed limit is 65 mph.
