3 killed in multiple vehicle crash near Moab

MOAB, Utah — Authorities say three people are dead following a four-vehicle crash in eastern Utah.

The accident happened around 3 p.m. Friday on state Route 191 about 30 miles south of Moab.

Troopers say the crash occurred when the driver of a Nissan Maxima attempted to pass a tractor-trailer in a no-passing zone, striking an oncoming Hyundai Azera.

The Deseret News (http://bit.ly/146RUJf ) reports the Nissan then was struck by a Cadillac. Another car was hit by debris.

Four occupants in the Nissan were residents of Saginaw, Texas. A 27-year-old woman and 54-year-old man were killed. Authorities say a 10-year-old girl and the driver received minor injuries.

A 69-year-old man from Perry, Ga., riding in the Cadillac also died. The driver and another woman in the car were seriously injured.
