RENO, Nev. (AP) — The California Highway Patrol is investigating a head-on crash on the edge of the Sierra that killed three people and injured four other others on U.S. Highway 395 near the California-Nevada line.

The patrol says a south-bound Nissan Pathfinder collided with a north-bound Toyota Tacoma at about 3:30 p.m. Sunday near Walker, California about 10 miles (16 kilometers) south of the Nevada line at Topaz Lake.

Two people in the Tacoma were taken to a Reno hospital where the driver later died. Five people in the Nissan also were hospitalized before two of those passengers were pronounced dead.

At least two of the injured people remain in critical condition.

No names have been released.
