Three University of Wyoming swimming and diving team members were killed in a car crash Thursday afternoon near the Wyoming-Colorado border, the school said. 

Sophomore Charlie Clark, 19, of Las Vegas; junior Luke Slabber, 21, of Cape Town, South Africa; and freshman Carson Muir, 18, of Birmingham, Alabama, died in the crash at the intersection of U.S. Highway 287 and Red Mountain Road between Livermore and Virginia Dale, Colorado, the university said in a news release. 

“Initial indications are that the driver swerved, and the vehicle went off the road, rolling multiple times. The accident is under investigation,” the release said.

The Colorado State Patrol said Friday that no factors had been ruled out as the case for the crash, including but not limited to speed, impairment, or other distractions.
