MANILA, Utah (AP) — Two people are dead and three others are in the hospital after a minivan carrying a family rolled several times in Utah.

Daggett County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Susie Potter says Mark Mathews was driving with four passengers on State Route 44 just south of Manila at about 4:45 p.m. Monday when the vehicle swerved off the road and rolled at least three times.

Potter says Mathews and Sage Edson both died at the scene. Edson was ejected from the vehicle.

Potter says a female passenger suffered serious injuries and was transported by medical helicopter to a Salt Lake City hospital. Two other passengers — a female and an 11-year-old boy — were taken to Ashley Valley Medical Center with minor injuries.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
