ELKO (AP) — A preliminary investigation indicates a head-on crash that killed four people in northeast Nevada over the weekend was caused by the driver of a car from Oregon who attempted to pass in a no-passing zone south of Wells.

The Nevada Highway Patrol says a silver Subaru with Oregon plates was heading north on U.S. 93 shortly before noon Saturday when it apparently crossed the double yellow, no-passing line.

The Subaru collided head-on with a southbound Hyundai with Idaho plates about 25 miles south of Wells.

The drivers and lone passenger in each vehicle were pronounced dead at the scene.
