STAGECOACH, Nev. (AP) -- Authorities say three people who were injured in a head-on crash that killed four people in western Nevada were a father and two of his children.

The identities of the four killed in Tuesday's crash involving three pickups towing trailers have not yet been released.

Nineteen-year-old Daniel Holley, of Dayton, was hospitalized with serious injuries. His father, 47-year-old Robert L. Holley, of Dayton, and 9-year-old sister, Anna Holley, had minor to moderate injuries.

Holley's father and sister were following him in a pickup truck that also was towing a livestock trailer.
