LANDER, Wyo. (AP) - Authorities have released the names of the three Wyoming residents killed in a two-vehicle crash in Fremont County.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says 18-year-old Darion Wheeler, of Lander, 15-year-old Destinee Wheeler, of Hudson, and 20-year-old Paul McEwan, of Greybull, all died in the crash Tuesday night on Highway 789, about 2 miles north of Lander.

The patrol says all three victims were traveling northbound in a 2003 Honda Pilot SUV driven by Darion Wheeler when the vehicle failed to negotiate a left-hand curve and was overcorrected. The SUV went into a counter-clockwise spin and entered the southbound lanes where it collided with a southbound 1993 Chevrolet Silverado.

The pickup driver was hospitalized in Lander.

Excessive speed and driver inattention are being investigated as contributing factors.
