The Nevada Highway Patrol says an elderly woman is dead after a head-on crash in eastern Nevada over the weekend.

Troopers say on Saturday morning, 82-year-old Oscar Vanderbossche was driving with his wife Maryann north of Wells on US 93. He tried to pass a car in the dense fog and hit a Dodge truck head-on.

Maryann died at the scene and Oscar was flown to a hospital where he is in critical condition.

The driver of the Dodge, Chad Jones was not seriously hurt.

The horses in his trailer were also not injured.
