(KSL News) -- Two teenagers died in an accident in Utah's Millard County this morning that injured four others.

The Utah Highway Patrol says Karine Durazo was driving with five passengers in her SUV when she swerved to miss an elk on the freeway. The SUV rolled several times ejecting everyone but the driver, who was the only one wearing a seatbelt.

The two teenage girls died instantly, 16-year old Leanne Durazo and her 15-year old sister Tiffany, who attended West Jordan High School.

Tiffany's fiance, Chase Wirick is at LDS Hospital with critical injuries. A three-month old baby boy, who was in a car seat, and his three-year old sister were also hurt in the accident. Both kids are at Primary Children's with critical head injuries.
