IOKA, Duchesne County — Two people were killed and a 12-year-old girl was injured in a head-on crash in eastern Utah on Sunday.

Devin Kirk, 18, of Heber City, was driving east on state Route 87 near Ioka about 4:35 p.m. Sunday when his Chrysler crossed suddenly into the westbound lane, according to Utah Highway Patrol.

Kirk's vehicle collided head-on into a Hyundai carrying five people. Kirk and the driver of the Hyundai, Shauna Allen, 46, of Wales, Sanpete County, were killed in the crash.

A 12-year-old girl who was in the Hyundai sustained serious injuries and was taken to a hospital by medical helicopter, UHP reported.

The one passenger in Kirk's vehicle and three other people in Allen's vehicle sustained little or no injury.

Speed and impairment are not suspected in the crash, UHP said.
