The second fatal collision in five days claimed the life of a  62-year-old Mammoth Lakes man, who succumbed to injuries he received in a collision in Smith Valley last weekend.

Lawrence Myrold died on Tuesday as a result of injuries received in the collision.

According to the Nevada Highway Patrol’s initial report, Myrold was driving westbound on Day Lane approaching Lower Colony Road in a GMC Sierra pickup.

He missed the stop sign at Lower Colony Road and collided with a 1998 Dodge Ram pickup, causing the Dodge to overturn.

Three people were injured in the 8:15 a.m. collision, two critically. East Fork and Lyon County medics responded to the collision. The two critically ill patients were transported by helicopter to Renown Regional Medical Center. East Fork transported the third person via ambulance.

The crash is being investigated by the Nevada Highway Patrol Northern Command West Multi-Disciplinary Investigation and Reconstruction Team.
