RENO, Nev. (AP) - The Nevada Highway Patrol has identified three people killed and a driver injured when their car overturned after hitting a piece of furniture that fell out of a pickup truck on a busy Reno freeway.

Authorities say 19-year-old Heather Norris was driving when she swerved to avoid a cabinet in the road Tuesday and the car overturned into oncoming traffic. She remains hospitalized in intensive car.

Three passengers in the car were killed.

They were identified Thursday as 20-year-old Terrance Elmassian; 23-year-old Michael Koroulakis, of San Bernardino, Calif., and 18-year-old Eva Santistevan of Sun Valley.

Authorities say Elmassian had moved to Reno four days before the accident.
