LOGAN, Utah (AP) - Investigators say two large dogs were riding with a Kaysville woman before she died in a head-on crash and may have distracted her, causing her to drift into oncoming traffic.

The Herald Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1GAU7yk ) that 23-year-old Tiffani R. Balling and her two dogs were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident Friday evening. She was not wearing a seatbelt.

Balling had been driving in Logan Canyon when she drifted into oncoming traffic and struck a Suburban carrying six members of a Logan family.

The driver, 47-year-old Peter B. Lindhardt, was taken by helicopter to the University of Utah Hospital in Salt Lake City. His wife and four sons, ages 12 to 22, were taken to Logan hospitals.

The entire family is reportedly in stable condition. They were all wearing seatbelts.
