HANNA, Utah, July 19, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) —  Three people were killed and one more is in critical condition after a crash involving three motorcycles on State Route 35 in Duchesne County Thursday.

The accident happened at about 10:30 a.m. on State Route 35, just west of Hanna, in Duchesne County.

“There was a large group of motorcycles, and one went down, and two others hit it,” Lt. Todd Royce, Utah Highway Patrol, told Gephardt Daily. “There were three riders and one passenger, three males and one female.”
