The driver and front-seat passenger were subsequently taken into custody, while the person in the backseat was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver was arrested by Ogden Police on charges of automobile homicide, felony DUI, ignition interlock device, alcohol restricted driver, and his multiple outstanding warrants.
