SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Authorities are identifying the two people who died over the weekend when a small plane crashed in southeastern Utah.

The San Juan County Sheriff’s Office said Monday in a news release that the victims are 53-year Kevin Carroll of Moab, Utah and 42-year-old Jay Camberlango of Lindon, Utah.
