RUGBY, N.D. – The identities of the two people involved in a fatal rollover crash near here early Sunday have been released.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol said Christopher Daniels, 20, of Dayton, Tenn., was the driver, and Ashley Houim, 17, of Rugby, was a passenger. Both were ejected from the vehicle and died on scene, according to the patrol.

Daniels was driving a 1999 Buick Century north on 27th Avenue Northeast, a gravel road, at 3:30 a.m. when he crossed the intersection at 70th Street Northeast and lost control of the vehicle, the patrol said. The car entered the west ditch and overturned.

Daniels and Houim weren’t wearing their seat belts, the patrol said.
