SPRINGVILLE, Utah (AP) — Authorities in Utah have released the name of a woman who died in a fiery crash in Springville. The Utah Highway Patrol identified the victim as 33-year-old Tayva Steele. They say Steele was driving a pickup truck that went off the Interstate 15 off-ramp and struck a utility pole about 2 a.m. Saturday. The truck then went into a construction area and traveled several hundred feet before hitting the side of a semi-truck and catching fire.

PHOENIX (AP) — About 450 sardine-sized fish with a mouthful of sharp teeth have been intentionally released in a lake in north-central Arizona. If they can survive predators, the meat-eating tiger muskies can grow to 3 feet long or more and can eat small bass -- allowing anglers to have larger bass to catch. The Utah Division of Wildlife Services donated the muskies to Arizona. The Arizona Game and Fish Department introduced the tiny but feisty fish on May 16 into Horsethief Basin Lake.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah signed a $44 million contract last spring with a school testing company that had a history of glitches and security issues and now students and teachers are reporting issues including unreliable test results as they use the system for the first time this spring, the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
