Nevada Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal accident that happened just before 10am Thursday on Highway 395 south of Gardnerville near Riverview Drive.

Troopers say a Ford Taurus wagon heading north on 395 was trying to make a left turn onto a private drive when it was rear-ended by a Chevy truck, pushing it into the oncoming lane in front of a Dodge truck towing a trailer heading south.

The Taurus and Dodge collided in the south travel lane. The driver of the Taurus died. People inside the other two vehicles received non life-threatening injuries.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
