LINCOLN COUNTY - Authorities have released the names of the four people killed in a rollover crash near Limon Friday evening.

Troopers say Jaderrick Gallaspy, 21; Annie Johnson, 38; Felicia McCurdy, 49, all three from Missouri, and Ellis Thompson, 22, from Mississippi, were ejected from an SUV during a rollover crash on Interstate 70 in Lincoln County.

There were a total of eight people in the SUV when it flipped, including children. Investigators say none of the passengers were wearing seat belts. All of them were ejected.

One man in the car was hospitalized with moderate injuries. Three juvenile male passengers suffered minor injuries.

Authorities say the Tahoe was trying to pass a semi-trailer truck traveling westbound on I-70 when the Tahoe drove off the left side of the road and struck a road sign. The driver, Gallaspy, overcorrected, went across the road, then came off the right side of the road and rolled.

Investigators do not suspect alcohol was a factor in the crash. The victims were heading to Denver for family reunion.
