(KSL News) Three young men are in jail accused of beating a man with a baseball bat.

Police say 23-year-old Juan Morales went to a gas station in Vernal Thursday night with two teen brothers, ages 14 and 16. They say another man at the station may have flashed the group "a dirty look" before driving off.

The trio followed that man to a restaurant, where police say the 16-year-old hit him in the head twice with a baseball bat. The man was taken to the hospital with severe head injuries.
