The victims of the roll-over accident south of Jackson Wednesday night have been identified now.  Two women from the Teton Valley, Idaho area died when the vehicle in which they were riding lost control and plunged over the embankment south of Jackson along highway 89.  70-year-old Rita J. Lyle and 77-year-old Illa Gail Kidder were pronounced dead at the scene.  A third, passenger, 67-year-old Ernest Taylor who is also from Teton Valley, was also seriously injured in the crash and was transferred to a Salt Lake City Hospital.  Details of the accident are not immediately available.  The accident took place about 7:00 pm during a snowstorm when roads were very slick.  Traffic along the highway was delayed by intermittent road closures as emergency equipment moved in and out of the scene.  Teton County officials say the afternoon snowstorm led to a number of other accidents around the area – some with injuries.
