WASHINGTON COUNTY -- Two people were killed when their car rolled on State Route 144 in Washington County Tuesday.
According to the Utah Highway Patrol, a car carrying four people rolled just outside of New Harmony around 3 p.m. Tuesday.
The driver, 38-year-old Jason McDonald of Cedar City, and 12-year-old Adaline Moore of Peoria, Ariz., were killed in the accident.
Investigators the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed when a tire separated, causing the driver to loose control.
The vehicle went off the road, rolled at least twice, then began to flip end-over-end when it was catapulted into the air by striking a dirt embankment. It landed nose-down and separated into two pieces on impact.
All occupants were wearing seat belts and no one was ejected.
