WELLS, Nev. -- Authorities have identified two people who died when wind gusts blew a trailer into oncoming traffic in northeastern Nevada last week.

Troopers say 65-year-old Carol Doramus of Twin Falls, Idaho, and 64-year-old Michael Cobb of Salem, Ore., died of their injuries from the head-on collision Friday.

Nevada Highway Patrol officials say Cobb was driving a pickup truck pulling a trailer southbound on U.S. 93, about 10 miles north of Wells. Witnesses say a cross wind lifted the trailer and pushed it and the truck into an oncoming lane, where it struck a northbound Ford Explorer.

Doramus was a passenger in the Explorer and was killed. The 69-year-old driver of the Explorer, Linda Call of Star, Idaho, was taken to a hospital in Reno.
