(KSL News) Alcohol may have contributed to a fatal car crash in Summit County today.

Authorities say a vehicle was traveling eastbound on State Road 40 and was going too fast when it exited the road on the left near milepost 2.6. The driver overcorrected and crossed the westbound lanes, running off the road to the right.

The vehicle hit a westbound car and then rolled several times, ejecting the driver and passenger. The driver, identified as 29-year-old Victor H. Bello Morales, was flown to the hospital in critical condition. The passenger, 28-year-old Julio Mondragon-Garcia, died on the scene.

The people in the other vehicle were not seriously hurt.

Authorities say the roads were damp and alcohol may have been a factor.
