RENO, Nev. (AP) - A 58-year-old woman driving an SUV the wrong way on Interstate 80 with its lights off has been killed in a head-on crash on the edge of Reno that also injured two people in the other car, one critically.

The Nevada Highway Patrol says both eastbound lanes of I-80 were shut down for about four hours after the collision just west of Reno at 4:41 a.m. Friday.

Investigators say the victim, Elaine Sands of Reno, was heading westbound in the eastbound slow lane when her 1994 Subaru smashed into a 2012 Toyota Yaris driven by 51-year-old Daniel Owens of California.

Owens is reported in stable condition at a Reno hospital. His passenger, 25-year-old Kayla Sturges of California, remains in critical condition with life threatening injuries.

Witnesses say the Subaru didn’t have its headlights on. The patrol is investigating.
