WENDOVER, Nevada — A man is dead and a woman is in the hospital following a car crash Tuesday night.

Nevada Highway Patrol responded to the scene on I-80.

They said the car had begun to drift off the road to the left, and the driver abruptly jerked the wheel to the right, causing the car to rotate clockwise and then roll several times.

Both occupants were ejected during rollover.

Lee Carmack died on the scene. Shanlee Green was flown to the University of Utah with serious injuries. Both are from Washington.

Neither of them were wearing a seat belt. It was not immediately clear who was driving the vehicle.
