Troopers have identified the people involved in Friday night's deadly accident on Mt. Rose Highway.
They say 50-year-old Tracy Scott of Reno was pulling out onto Mt. Rose Highway from a driveway when she lost control due to snow on the road.
She slid into the opposite lane and was hit by a pickup towing a trailer, driven by 36-year-old Kurt Heinrichs of Reno.
Both drivers were taken to Renown Regional Medical Center, where Scott later passed away.
Heinrichs was released later Friday night.
