MENOKEN (AP) - The Highway Patrol has identified a girl killed in a crash near Menoken as 14-year-old Lisa Burdolski of Bismarck.

Burdolski was a passenger in a sport utility vehicle that rolled into a ditch and struck two trees before ending up on its passenger side about 8:45 p.m. Saturday.

Burdolski was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver and three other injured passengers were taken to a Bismarck hospital. They are Kaydee Heaton, 15, of McKenzie, Desirae Schmaltz, 14, of Bismarck, Amber Braun, 14 of Dickinson, and Tyra Small, 14, of Bismarck.

In a seperate accident on Saturday, a 21-year-old New Salem man died in a one-vehicle rollover in south-central North Dakota.

The state Highway Patrol said Cody Wetzel was westbound on Morton County Road 139, about 10 miles west of Mandan, when his 2000 Chevrolet Impala left the road at about 11:45 a.m. Saturday.

Wetzel overcorrected, spun off the blacktop and rolled into a steep ravine, with his car flipping onto its roof.

Wetzel, who wasn't wearing a seat belt, was ejected. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
