SUNSET, Utah (ABC4) – Police have confirmed two people died in a head-on crash in Sunset on Sunday night.
Sgt. Jamison, Sunset Police, said a 33-year-old male driver in a Honda Pilot was headed south on Main street near 1800 North when for some reason he veered into oncoming traffic.
The driver hit a 46-year-old female driving a Hyundai Santa Fe head-on. Both the man and the woman died on impact. Police say the male was wearing a seatbelt, but due to the vehicle damage, they were unable to determine if the other driver was restrained.
