SPRING CREEK, Nev. (AP) - Authorities say alcohol might have played a factor in a deadly crash on a northeastern Nevada road.

Four people died in the Tuesday night crash on State Route 227 in Spring Creek.

Authorities have identified them as 27-year-old Heston Brock and 25-year-old Caitlin Terry, who were traveling in a Ford Focus. Two passengers in a Ford Expedition, 19-year-old Derick Rimington, and 5-year-old Hailey Layton, both of Spring Creek, also died.

Nevada Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Kirt Beach tells the Elko Daily Free Press (https://bit.ly/RFHgoV ) that troopers found alcohol in the Focus and suspect Brock was impaired. They are awaiting toxicology reports.

Authorities say the driver of the Expedition was making a left turn when it was struck by the Focus. The Expedition overturned, hitting and knocking over a light pole.



Two others were injured.
