Flora was involved in the head-on crash that also killed 26-year-old Sierra Grace Woodward of Carson City.
The driver of the Nissan Altima believed to be responsible for the crash, Jason William Cloutier, 34, of Carson City, remains in serious condition at Renown Regional Medical Center. Flora was driving a Ford Taurus when he was struck by Cloutier's car which caused it to burst into flames.
