SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Utah Highway Patrol believes strong winds may have caused a rollover accident that killed a Murray man and his two stepchildren.
A UHP spokesman says conditions were windy Sunday on State Road 24 near Hanksville. Darren Westerfield was driving a sport utility vehicle and pulling a boat on a trailer, creating more surface area for the wind to hit.
Troopers believe Westerfield lost control of the SUV, which rolled off of the road. Tyler Hibler, 15, and 7-year-old Alissa Keep also died in the crash. Four other family members survived.
