LAS VEGAS (KSNV -- A Henderson woman killed Friday morning in a head-on accident near Lake Las Vegas has been identified by the Clark County coroner's office.

Linda May Yettaw, 52, died of multiple blunt force trauma when her Toyota Camry crossed the center line into oncoming traffic while westbound on Lake Mead Parkway near Three Kids Mine about 6:20 a.m.

She collided with a Toyota Prius.

Yettaw was taken to Sunrise Hospital but died about 9:15 a.m.

The driver of the Prius, Susan Pesava, 69, of Henderson, was also taken to Sunrise Hospital. She is expected to survive her injuries. Both women were the only occupants of their vehicles.

A preliminary investigation indicates that alcohol and speed do not appear to be factors in the crash. The crash remains under investigation. 

In 2013, 267 people were killed in motor vehicle crashes on Nevada roadways. So far this year, 115 people have died in traffic-related fatalities statewide with 63 of those deaths occurring in Clark County. Friday’s fatal accident was the fifth traffic-related death in Henderson this year.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
