KANE COUNTY, Utah, Sept. 25, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — A car passenger was killed and the drivers of that car and an SUV were transported to area hospitals early Friday morning after a head-on collision in Kane County.

Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Chris Bishop told Gephardt Daily on Friday morning that a head-on collision occurred after an SUV came upon a slow-moving truck and attempted to pass it.

“It made an illegal pass,” Bishop said. “As it moved into the eastbound lane, it hit a midsized passenger vehicle head on. The impact caused the vehicle spin, then he came to rest.

“The front passenger of the passenger car died on the scene. The driver of the car was flown to an area hospital in critical condition.”

The driver of the SUV was also transported to a hospital in critical condition.


  1. My cousins daughter died in this accident. Her best friends life hangs in the balance. All because someone had to try to pass a slower moving vehicle. This world had become a “need to go add fast as we’re can to get where we’re are going” world. It breaks my heart that people are this way. Slow down and enjoy life. Treasure every moment you have with your loved ones. You never know when they will be taken home to heaven. Prayers for both drivers.

  2. Please don’t let your impatience get the best of you, 3 lives were put at risk because of it and one is dead. They were and are the most incredible people I’ve ever met and my best friends. She was the most kind, caring, loving, adventurous, ambitious, beautiful, funny, and one of the best mothers ever! I love them all with all of me and she will always have a special place in my heart. I love you angel.
