VIRGIN, Washington County — Troopers have identified a Washington County couple killed in a car crash near Zion National Park.

Warda A. Lewis, 85, and Floyd L. Lewis, both of Rockville, were traveling west on state Route 9 roughly 10 miles outside Zion National Park on Monday morning when their Toyota Camry veered onto the right shoulder, the Utah Highway Patrol said.

When they corrected it back onto the road, the car spun into the path of an eastbound Ford van, which collided with the passenger side of the Camry. Warda Lewis, who was driving, and Floyd Lewis were pronounced dead at the scene.

The two occupants of the van survived.
