BRIGHAM CITY, Utah — Two people are dead and another is in critical condition after a single-vehicle crash on I-15 Tuesday evening.

A passenger car with three people was traveling south through Brigham City around 5 p.m. when the accident occurred.

According to a Utah Highway Patrol spokesperson, the driver swerved to avoid a tire tread in the road. They lost control, causing the car to go off the right side of the freeway and hit a pole.

The driver, a male whose name or age were not provided, was killed.

A female passenger in the front seat was airlifted to a hospital in critical condition, where she later died.

The passenger in the back seat was also flown from the scene. They suffered critical, life-threatening injuries.

UHP troopers are investigating the cause of the crash.

The southbound lanes of the freeway were closed temporarily for emergency response and clean-up. The scene and traffic cleared later that evening.

The same day, another fatal crash occurred in Saratoga Springs.

Another crash resulted in critical injuries in Spanish Fork Canyon.
