Ferguson was dead at the scene of an accident six miles south of the Juab County line on I-15.

In a separate accident, Baker was killed after the bicycle he was riding and a vehicle driven by Lionel Dubano, 26, El Cerrito, Calif., collided about 50 miles from Kanab on U-9. The accident occurred about 3:20 p.m.
Utah Highway Patrol officials said Dubano's vehicle was eastbound when Baker made a U-turn in front of Dubano and the bicycle and vehicle collided. Baker was taken to Kane County Hospital where he died at 4:30 p.m.
