WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah, March 1, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Police are investigating a deadly crash which claimed the lives of two teens early Friday morning.

West Valley City Police Lt. Shane Matheson told Gephardt Daily the accident happened about 12:06 a.m. when an eastbound passenger car crossed the median on 4100 South 4520 West and slammed head-on into a westbound SUV.

Two victims inside the passenger car – 17-year-old Sage Snow, and his brother, 16-year-old Rylie Snow, died on scene.

A woman driver of the westbound SUV sustained minor injuries, but was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

Matheson said slick roads and poor visibility may have been factors in the deadly accident, but stressed the investigation was just beginning. He said there was no overt evidence of impairment, but it would take weeks for toxicology reports to be returned.

Gephardt Daily will update the story as more information is made available.
