TREMONTON -- A 16-year-old boy was killed Friday and two others were hospitalized in serious condition after a rollover on Interstate 15.
Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Lee Perry said that, around 4:15 p.m., an 18-year-old man was driving a white GMC pickup truck south on I-15, near where the road merges with eastbound Interstate 84, when the car veered to the right. The man overcorrected, driving the truck off the left side of the road. The truck rolled and ended up on I-84, he said.
Both passengers, a 16-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl, were ejected from the car, killing the boy immediately, Perry said. The girl was transported to a local hospital in extremely critical condition, then taken by helicopter to University Hospital in Salt Lake City. The driver, whom crews extricated from the vehicle, was taken to a local hospital in serious condition, then airlifted to Intermountain Medical Center in Murray.
A UHP news release identified the 16-year-old boy as Tyler Stuart, of Brigham City.
Perry said neither passenger was believed to have been wearing a seat belt, and he was unsure if the driver was wearing one.
The names of the driver and female passenger were not released.
