TOOELE COUNTY, Utah, Sept. 27, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) – A man and a woman were killed in a single-vehicle rollover on SR-196 in Tooele County early Sunday morning.

The crash occurred on the road also known as Skull Valley Road at mile marker 23 at approximately 6 a.m., said a tweet from Utah Highway Patrol. The vehicle was southbound on SR-196 and drifted off the road to the left. The vehicle then swerved back right and rolled.
