SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Police have released the names of the two Utah County men who were killed in a car accident on I-15 over the weekend.

Authorities say the victims are 29-year-old Jason Peck, of Eagle Mountain, and 26-year-old Curtis Edward, of Cedar Hills.

The accident happened early Sunday morning near 2800 South on I-15 in South Salt Lake when Edward slammed into the back of a tow truck parked in the emergency lane. He died instantly.

Peck, the passenger in the vehicle, died later at the hospital. And a third passenger and the driver of the tow truck suffered minor injuries.

Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Jeff Nigbur says NO one was wearing their seat belt. He says the accident remains under investigation, however, alcohol may be a factor in the crash.
