August 4, 2019

MONTICELLO, Utah (AP) — Authorities say two Arizona residents and a North Dakota woman are dead after a head-on collision in Utah involving an SUV and a pickup truck.

Utah Highway Patrol officials say the crash occurred Saturday afternoon near Monticello in San Juan County.

They say the truck apparently veered onto the northbound lane of State Route 191 and collided with the SUV towing a boat.

Authorities say a 75-year-old man and 73-year-old woman were the only occupants in the SUV and the two Arizona residents died at the scene.

Their names weren’t immediately available Sunday.

A 68-year-old North Dakota woman was a passenger in the truck and authorities say she also was declared dead at the scene.

The truck’s driver was listed in critical condition after being airlifted to a Colorado hospital.
