Two women and one man from Ogden were killed in a one-car rollover on I-80 west of here when the driver drifted off the road and overcorrected, according to the Wyoming Highway Patrol.

The driver, Max, Melitzer, 44, also of Ogden, was the only survivor of the Tuesday afternoon crash. He was in stable condition at Sweetwater County Memorial Hospital earlier this week when he was transferred to another hospital, which the nursing supervisor refused to name.

Melitzer's wife, Janice Melitzer, 44, also died in the crash, and Cindy Lee Jones, 36, died on the way to the hospital. The fourth pasenger, Glen Chrietzderg, 36, died Wednesday morning at the University of Utah Hospital, according to the patrol.

All four were ejected from the car when it crashed about five miles east of Rock Springs. None were wearing seat belts.
