RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The 17-year-old teenager involved in the single-vehicle rollover crash on Tuesday afternoon in Pleasant Valley has died from her injuries at Renown Regional Medical Center, according to Nevada Highway Patrol.

Heather Brown was declared brain dead on Wednesday afternoon at approximately 3:06 pm, and had remained on an artificial life-support system through this morning when doctors were scheduled to perform an organ donation procedure.

The crash happened around 4pm on April 23rd. NHP is still investigating why Brown abruptly steered her car to the left, causing the vehicle to travel across the center turn lane and both northbound travel lanes, ultimately hitting a tree.
