A St. George man died from injuries he received in a Sunday morning rollover crash on Interstate 15 in Nevada.

The Nevada Highway Patrol reported that the driver of a 2001 Hyundai car was northbound on the interstate when the driver lost control and veered into the center median where the car rolled into the southbound lane.

One of the passengers, 19-year-old Nathan M. Short, was ejected from the car during the rollover. He was taken Las Vegas's University Medical Center by air ambulance and was pronounced dead Sunday night. The remaining three occupants in the car also were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

No one in the car was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, officials reported.
