(KSL News) -- Bad road conditions and too much speed were a deadly combination in a crash in Tooele that killed a toddler.
State Troopers say a large pick-up tried to pass other cars on State Road-112 in a heavy downpour of rain and hail around 1:00. The truck lost control and rolled.
Four adults and four children were in the cab. A two-year old boy was thrown from the truck and killed. Troopers say only the driver was wearing a seatbelt.
Lt. Mike Rapich, Utah Highway Patrol: "You have speed limits posted on the highway. Those are the maximum speeds you can go in the best conditions. As weather deteriorates your speed needs to be reduced."
State Troopers have had a frantic day trying to keep up with a number of crashes state-wide.
