The Iowa State Patrol have released the names of the four people killed when the driver of a 15-passenger van lost control and rolled over on the slick road on US Highway 20 near Wellsburg Friday morning. All were members of an Amish family from Delhi, on their way to Missouri to visit family. They were identified as 22-year-old Ervin J. Borntreger, 4-year-old Emma Borntreger, 2-year-old Rebecca Borntreger, and 1-year-old Marlin Borntreger. The driver of the van was Sara Werner of Hopkinton. She was among nine other people, including six adults and three children under the age of five, injured in the crash. Most went to Grundy County Memorial Hospital, but two went to MercyOne Waterloo Medical Center, and two went to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City. Patrol officials say none of the occupants were wearing seatbelts or using child restraint devices. The investigation is continuing.
