Nevada Highway Patrol troopers have identified the three people killed in a head-on accident Wednesday on Highway 50 south of Dayton.

The accident happened around 3:30pm five miles south of Dayton near Six Mile Canyon Road.

Troopers say 73-year-old Ellis Lee Erwin was heading east on the highway when he veered his Ford F-150 truck into the oncoming lane and hit a Toyota Camry driven by 43-year-old Michelle Marie Stratton.

Erwin and his passenger, 72-year-old Louise Ky. Erwin, died at the scene.

Stratton also died on scene.

All of the victims were from the Dayton area.

Troopers temporarily closed the west lane as authorities processed the accident scene. The east lane remained open. All lanes reopened to traffic more than five hours later.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
