She, her mother, Nieve, 67, and father father Augusto, 68, were wearing seatbelts but all died when the vehicle rolled.

Gee suffered life-threatening injuries and was airlifted to Renown Regional Medical Center. All are from Reno.

Highway Patrol officials are asking anyone with information to call Trooper Mike Stapledon at 689-4623.
