(KSL News) A two-car crash killed a BYU student and sent his brother-in-law to the hospital in critical condition.
The wreck happened 10 miles west of Duchesne on U-40. Derrick Grayson, 25, died at the scene.
The driver, 19-year-old Steven Cochran of Vernal, has multiple injuries, including two broken legs and brain trauma.
Highway Patrol troopers say Cochran tried to pass a car, but didn't see an oncoming truck. Both cars veered to avoid each other, but crashed head-on off the road.
Three people in the truck were treated and released.
Cochran was scheduled to leave on an LDS church mission to Spain next month.
