Both men were taken to the Logan Regional Hospital, where Chambers was pronounced dead on arrival. Ball was treated for cuts and bruises.
The Glassets were killed Sunday when their car struck a pickup truck head-on about 14 miles north of Kingman, Ariz., on U.S. 93. Few details were immediately available.
Helen Lambert died at 1:40 p.m. Saturday at the Mountain View Hospital in Payson from injuries received in a 7:25 a.m. accident Friday on U.S. 6 a half-mile above the mouth of Spanish Fork Canyon.
Her husband, Jack Ray Lambert, died in the accident, which occurred when she lost control of the car on the icy road, spun around and collided with another car.
The driver of the other car, Steven Hixon, 26, and his wife were treated and released at a local hospital.
