BOX ELDER COUNTY, Utah — A driver died Thursday after a crash on a highway in Box Elder County.

According to the Utah Highway Patrol, the driver of a Honda Accord was westbound on State Route 30 (which connects Cache Valley to the Tremonton area) near Beaver Dam when the accident occurred.

Witnesses said the driver was passing another vehicle in a no-passing zone and at a high rate of speed shortly after 12 p.m. The driver reportedly lost control and went into oncoming traffic, and the Accord was T-boned by an eastbound Ford Crown Victoria.

The driver of the Accord had to be extricated from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene. It was not provided whether they were wearing a seat belt.

The driver and passenger of the Ford were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.


"We send our condolences to all involved and their loved ones," wrote Garland Fire Department, one of the responding agencies, in a tweet.

The driver was identified as 22-year-old Mercedes Davis of Providence.
