Two men from Nevada were killed Wednesday morning in a head-on collision on U.S. 95 alternate five miles south of Fernley, Nev.

The wreck occurred around 8:20 a.m. when a 1998 Isuzu pickup headed northbound crossed the center line and slammed into a 1998 Saturn sedan.

A 30-year-old man from Dayton, Nev., was driving the pickup. Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper J. Troy Lindley said the man’s name is being withheld until a family member is notified of the death.

Andrew Phillip Aney, 20, of Silver Springs, Nev., was driving the Saturn. Both men were not wearing a seat belt and died from the impact of the collision.
