LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities in Las Vegas have identified a Los Angeles couple as two of three people killed in a rollover automobile crash during the weekend on a state highway near the Colorado River resort town of Laughlin.

The Clark County coroner says 82-year-old Raymond Guzman and 84-year-old Mary Hellan Guzman died in the wreck about 1:40 p.m. Sunday on State Route 163.

Nevada Highway Patrol says the 85-year-old driver of the 2000 GMC Safari overcorrected when a rear tire failed.

Each died of multiple injuries, and the coroner ruled their deaths an accident.

The name of a 77-year-old woman also killed wasn't immediately released.

The driver was taken about 100 miles to University Medical Center in Las Vegas for treatment of injuries that officials said didn't appear to be life-threatening.
