SMOOT, Wyo. (AP) - Authorities have identified the two men killed in a single-vehicle rollover last week in western Wyoming.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says the accident last Friday killed 71-year-old Clark Willis and 48-year-old Magno N. Lazano-Ricardo, both of Logan, Utah.

They died when the SUV they were riding in rolled into a creek off U.S. 89 near the small town of Smoot.

Sgt. David Wagener says the vehicle drifted off the road for about 275 feet before hitting a bridge railing and vaulting onto a creek bank. The vehicle landed on its roof and slid down into the water.

Wagener says Willis, the driver, died during the wreck, while Lazano-Ricardo drowned.

He says a possible medical condition is being investigated as a contributing factor in the crash.
