A father was killed and his 15-year old daughter was critically injured in an early morning crash near Kyle Canyon on Friday, according to the Nevada Highway Patrol.

The crash happened just after 5 a.m. on southbound U.S. 95 at the Snow Mountain exit. The father was driving a 2000 Ford Explorer with his daughter and her mother in tow. Investigators believe he fell asleep at the wheel and lost control when he woke up and over corrected to the right causing the vehicle to overturn. 

The man, who was restrained, died at the scene, according to officials. He was identified as 49-year-old Jose Dominguez, of Fallon.His teen daughter was taken to University Medical Center in critical condition after she was ejected from an unrestrained back passenger seat in the vehicle.

The girl's mother was airlifted to UMC with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

All southbound lanes were temporarily shut down during the investigation.

No further details were immediately released.
