GIBBON, Neb. (AP) - Authorities have released the names of three people involved in a fatal Interstate 80 crash in south-central Nebraska.

The accident was reported about 1:20 p.m. Thursday near the Gibbon interchange in Buffalo County. The Nebraska State Patrol says the driver lost control of the vehicle and it rolled into the median.

The patrol says one passenger, 62-year-old Stephen Clark, was killed. Clark's wife, 61-year-old Kathleen Clark, also was a passenger. She was treated at a Kearney hospital and released. Their home is in Punta Gorda, Florida.

The driver was hospitalized in Kearney. The patrol says she's a 17-year-old girl from Lansing, Michigan.
