MILFORD, Beaver County — Two people died when the car they were in hit a building in Milford Monday night.

The deceased have since been identified as Misty Henrie, 47, and Stephen Polanshek, 41. Both were both residents of Milford, according to a news release from the Utah Highway Patrol .

The car and a motorcycle were northbound on Main Street near 400 South at a high rate of speed when the drivers of both vehicles lost control about 9:30 p.m., the release says. The car spun, hit a light pole and a building before coming to rest in the southbound lane.

The motorcycle crashed just south of the car and landed in the northbound lane.
