Student killed, another injured in Southern Utah accident
MOUNT CARMEL, Kane County — A BYU student was killed and another was injured in a traffic accident last week.
Utah Highway Patrol Cpl. Todd Johnson said three people were traveling on U.S. 89 in Kane County on Nov. 20 about 6:30 a.m. when the driver apparently fell asleep and the car went off the road near Mount Carmel.
The vehicle flew off the embankment, did a "nose dive" into the ground and landed on its hood, he said.
The passenger in the backseat, Madeline Morris, 18, of Spring Hill, Texas, was killed. The driver, her brother Taylor Morris, 23, also of Spring Hill, Texas, suffered serious injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital, Johnson said. A 24-year-old woman from Arizona in the front passenger seat was not injured.
