For the second time in as many days, an Iron County crash has claimed the life of a 19-year-old man.

On Sunday (6/25/23), just before 11pm, Cedar communications received a 911 call from a Kanarraville resident reporting a car crash. Iron County Sheriff Deputies, the Utah Highway Patrol, and Gold Cross ambulance personnel all responded to 1200 N, East Frontage Rd; Kanarraville.

A 1999 Red Ford F-150 pickup truck occupied by 3 people was traveling southbound on a dirt road. Upon entering a curve in the roadway, the truck lost control causing the vehicle to roll. One occupant, a nineteen-year-old male was ejected from the vehicle.

On scene Sheriff deputies and Emergency Medical personnel performed CPR but were unsuccessful and the male and was pronounced decease at the scene. The other two occupants, both juveniles, had minor injuries and were treated at the scene and released.

The roles of all occupants involved, and the cause of this crash are still under investigation. It was determined that speed appeared to be a factor in this crash, however, it’s is not believed at this time that alcohol or drugs were involved.

On Saturday, near Hamilton Fort, a head-on collision resulted in the on-scene death of another 19-year-old male.
