FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — Authorities have released the names of a mother and daughter who were killed when the pickup they were in was struck by a tractor-trailer that rolled east of Fort Collins.

Weld County Coroner Mark Ward identified the victims Tuesday as 33-year-old Brandy Yates and 9-year-old Paradise Yates.

Colorado State Patrol Trooper Nate Reid tells The Fort Collins Coloradoan (http://noconow.co/1BKmtD4 ) an 18-wheeler hauling logs from Utah to Eaton rolled on Colorado Highway 14 about two miles west of Ault on Monday. The 33-year-old driver of the 18-wheeler suffered minor injuries, and a 24-year-old Greeley man in the pickup was seriously injured.

Ward says Brandy Yates was pregnant when she was killed.
