MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Dane County authorities are releasing the name of the 9-year-old boy killed in a rollover crash on Interstate 90 near Madison. He's Alonzo Stevenson of St. Paul, Minn.

   WKOW-TV (http://bit.ly/njMXkd ) reports the crash happened about 3:40 a.m. Saturday when officials say the 50-year-old driver of a 1994 GMC SUV fell asleep at the wheel.

   The driver awoke when the vehicle hit the rumble strips on the side of the interstate and over-corrected. The driver lost control and the vehicle rolled, ejecting the boy.

   Two other passengers suffered non-life threatening injuries. The driver was not hurt in the accident.

   An autopsy performed by the Dane County medical examiner's office confirmed Alonzo died of injuries sustained in the crash.
