WASHINGTON COUNTY, Utah — Two people were killed in a crash involving a motorcycle and vehicle in southwestern Utah.
Trooper Mike Alexander with the Utah Highway Patrol said the crash happened around 4:20 p.m. Sunday at milepost 16 on Old Highway 91, near the Gunlock Road turnoff.
A Harley Davidson motorcycle occupied by a man and woman was traveling south when a northbound Honda crossed the center line and struck the bike head-on.
Alexander said both of the motorcycle’s occupants were killed in the crash while the driver of the Honda was airlifted to an area hospital in critical condition.
Troopers said the Honda’s driver is expected to survive.
The crash is under investigation and Alexander said possible impairment of the Honda’s driver is suspected as a factor in the crash.
Authorities have not identified the two victims who were killed, pending notification of next of kin.
