CEDAR CITY, Utah – Two people died and three were injured after a rollover crash near Cedar City Friday night.
According to the Utah Highway Patrol, a Honda Civic was traveling southbound on Interstate 15, near mile marker 90. At approximately 8:17 p.m., the vehicle lost control and traveled off the road to the left, into the median and rolled several times.
Five people were inside the car, with two female passengers — one 19 and one 17 years old — being ejected from the car and suffering fatal injuries.
The 19-year-old was identified Monday as Alexia De Campos. The identity of the 17-year-old was not released due to her age.
The male driver and another female passenger suffered critical injuries and were flown to a local hospital. A fourth female passenger suffered moderate injuries and was taken by ambulance to a local hospital.
Troopers said lack of seat belt use and excessive speed were being investigated as possible contributors to the crash.
