The driver of the GMC, Ryan Harvey, 39, of Myton, was killed. A female passenger in the vehicle was taken to a local hospital in serious condition with injuries that were not considered life-threatening, the UHP stated.
Two men in the Ford were flown by medical helicopter to a local hospital in critical conditions, according to the UHP. Because of fog, UHP troopers said helicopters needed to land about 10 miles west of the crash, and ambulances took the men to the helicopters.
Troopers say the road was "very icy" and there were spots of dense fog at the time of the crash. Investigators also say the Ford may have also been going too fast for conditions and had poor tire tread.
