A 72-year-old Taiwanese woman who was visiting the United States on vacation has died from injuries she suffered in a single-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 50 near Lake Tahoe.
   
The Nevada Highway Patrol has identified the victim of Sunday's fatal crash as Pao-Yi Tseng.
   
She was a passenger in the back seat of a westbound Nissan Altima that her husband was driving when it crossed over the shoulder of the right side of the highway and hit a tree north of Glenbrook near the Douglas County line.
   
The couple's daughter was treated for non-life threatening injuries at Barton Memorial Hospital.
   
The driver, Jiann-Juh Tseng, was not seriously injured. The patrol says he was wearing a seat belt. It's not yet clear if the others were.
   
Troopers say impairment is not suspected. The crash remains under investigation.
