TREMONTON, Utah – Officials with the Utah Highway Patrol said one person died and another suffered critical injuries in a crash near milepost 374 on northbound I-15 in Box Elder County.

The crash was reported around 12:20 p.m. Friday.

Box Elder Chief Deputy Dale Ward said two passenger cars rear-ended two semi-trucks in separate incidents in the same area.

Ward said weather conditions were likely a factor in the crashes.

Officials with the Utah Highway Patrol said a male driver was killed after he failed to slow down in traffic that had built up due to weather conditions, construction and a previous crash in the area.

A third crash occurred around 4 p.m. about 25 miles north of the first two crashes. Two people were critically injured and flown to area hospitals after rolling off the road into a ditch.

Police said their injuries were non-life-threatening.
