(KUTV) -- A 13-year-old boy died in a head-on collision crash as a passenger in a 2016 Ford F-150 truck Sunday morning.
The crash happened at 8:19 a.m. by mile-marker 305 on Highway 89 near Birdseye, east of Santaquin and south of Spanish Fork. The crash closed lanes in both directions.
Utah Highway Patrol reported a 31-year-old female driving a 2008 Kia Sedona was traveling southbound when she drifted into oncoming traffic and impacted the truck.
The truck traveling northbound and was towing a Razor and dirt bike. The truck was driven by a 48-year-old man with his teen son in the passenger seat when the Kia struck them.
The female Kia driver and the teen boy were transported by air and ground to the hospital in critical condition. The father of the teen sustained non-life-threatening injuries. His son, Maylor B. Stout, of South Jordan, later succumbed to his injuries, UHP said.
All involved parties were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident. Drowsy driving is suspected as a contributing factor to the accident.
One lane opened by Sunday afternoon, but motorists should still expect delays along that stretch of highway.
