MILLVILLE, Utah – Three people were injured in a multiple-vehicle crash Thursday night, and police officials said they suspect a man involved in the crash was driving while drunk.

Hospital officials confirmed Saturday evening that one of the victims, 67-year-old Randolph Wirth, died Saturday due to injuries sustained in the crash.

Deputies responded to the accident near 140 West and 200 South in Millville around 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

According to information from the Cache County Sheriff’s Office, investigation and witness interviews led police to believe that 40-year-old Alvin Henson was driving erratically and lost control of his truck before striking a car head on.

In addition to the truck and the passenger car, a motorcycle was also involved in the crash. The driver of the motorcycle, Wirth, was seriously injured and later died. The release stated that it was not clear how the motorcycle became involved in the crash or where it was in relation to the other vehicles.

Wirth, Henson and Henson’s passenger, Brian Schofield of Logan, were taken to McKay Dee Hospital. Henson and Schofield had minor injuries. The two individuals in the other car were not injured.

Henson has been booked into the Cache County Jail on multiple charges, including DUI, driving on alcohol restriction and failure to install an interlock device. Henson has prior DUI arrests in his history, the release stated.
