Utah Highway Patrol officers and emergency personnel investigate and work to clean up a truck accident off I-70 near Richfield. The crash killed a Draper teen and injured three other people. A Highway Patrol official said the roads were slick due to heavy hail.

Two Utahns died Wednesday in separate accidents on interstate highways.

A Draper teen was killed after heavy hail and slick roads caused a vehicle to roll on I-70 in central Utah.

Eleigh Lecates, 15, was in the back seat of a 2005 Ford Explorer that rolled multiple times near the town of Joseph just after 1:30 p.m., said Utah Highway Patrol trooper Cameron Roden.

"It was hailing pretty heavily and the roads were slick," Roden said. "The driver lost control, and the vehicle turned over several times."

Corine Pevny, 46, and 15-year-old Cami Pevny, both of Highland, were taken to a Sevier County hospital by ambulance. Richard Pevny, 58, was taken to a nearby hospital by helicopter.

Both adults were wearing seat belts, but police said they were unsure if the teens also were wearing seat belts.

In the other fatal crash, an Ogden man was killed when a driver swerved into a construction zone on I-15 to miss another vehicle Wednesday afternoon.

Daniel J. Perry, 29, was the passenger in a car that was cut off by another car, causing the car to swerve and hit a median, Roden said. The crash happened near 200 North around 2:50 p.m. Perry died on impact, he said.

The driver of the southbound car, 27-year-old Christopher Chatlain of Clearfield, was transported to Ogden Regional Medical Center in serious-to-critical condition. Both men were wearing seat belts, police said.
