SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Four people are dead after separate crashes on Interstate-80 over the weekend.

Utah Highway Patrol officers say 25-year-old Courtney Florence was killed Friday when his S-U-V went off the road near Delle and he was ejected. Saturday night, 32-year-old Tai Sprague died after losing control of her car about 30-miles east of the Utah-Nevada state line.

An unidentified passenger was killed Saturday when the driver rolled the vehicle near Tooele. And near Wendover, officers say 23-year-old Virasack Boungnavath died early Sunday morning after police say she tried to get the driver to pull over by grabbing the steering wheel. The driver lost control, rolled the car and ejected both of them.

Police say either alcohol, lack of seat belts, or both were to blame in all of the accidents.
