MCLENNAN COUNTY, Texas (KWTX) The victims of a rollover on Interstate 35 that killed one and injured four others were all Texas A&M students who served as Young Life volunteers and were on their way to Colorado.

The Toyota 4Runner in which the five were riding rolled after a tire blew out, causing the driver to lose control at around 1:40 p.m. Saturday near Wiggins Road outside of West.

Three passengers were ejected.

Anna Wegner, 19, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver and three other passengers were transported to a local hospital, one of them in critical condition.

According to a statement released by Young Life, the five volunteers were all Texas A&M University students who were headed to Young Life's Frontier Ranch in Buena Vista, Colo., KBTX-TV reported.

About 100 other Texas A&M students were set to join them, but Young Life said that some of those students have chosen not to make the trip now.
