DeGiovanni and Hyson were identified as the men killed when the pickup truck DeGiovanni was driving ran a stop sign and crashed into a semitrailer truck about 35 miles west of Cedar City at the intersection of SR 18 and SR 56, a dispatcher said.
Hyson's son, Aaron, 10, was listed in critical condition Sunday at Valley View Medical Center. He was transferred to a Nevada hospital Sunday night, according to a Cedar City hospital spokeswoman.
And, in a separate incident, John Vala, 76, Clarkdale, Ariz., died of an apparent heart attack while driving south on I-15, about 20 miles north of Beaver, the dispatcher said. His vehicle ran through a center divider, across oncoming traffic lanes and through a fence, the UHP said.
His 74-year-old wife, Dorothea, was wearing a seat belt and escaped injury, the dispatcher said.
