GUNNISON, Sanpete County — A 19-year-old man involved in a head-on collision near Gunnison earlier this week has died from his injuries, police said Friday.

Matthews lost control of the Pontiac Grand Prix she was driving, crossed into northbound traffic and collided with a Toyota pickup.
She was transported to Gunnison Valley Hospital, where she died of her injuries.
The driver of the Toyota, 19-year-old Brady Kyle Simons, was hospitalized in extremely critical condition. Simons died from his injuries Thursday night, family members said.
