Sheriff IDs 1 of 2 dead in Box Elder County crash

WILLARD, Utah (AP) — Authorities say a 15-year-old boy and a 66-year-old woman are dead after their vehicle was broadsided over the weekend in Box Elder County.

Deputies say the crash happened about 5:30 p.m. Saturday on Main Street in Willard.

Investigators say a 2006 Toyota Tundra hit the vehicle, and the two victims were pronounced dead at the scene. The woman has been identified as Ruth P. Nelson, but the teen’s name has not yet been released.

The 31-year-old driver of the Tundra was taken to Brigham City Community Hospital for minor injuries, but was later released.

Police say the crash is under investigation and is expected to be forwarded to the Box Elder County Attorney’s Office so prosecutors can screen it for possible charges.
