EAGLE MOUNTAIN, Utah (AP) - Authorities are investigating whether alcohol was a factor in a head-on crash in Eagle Mountain that killed a woman and a teenager and “demolished” two cars.

Utah County deputies say the crash happened on State Route 73 at about 1:30 p.m. Thursday, when an eastbound Ford Fusion drifted over the median and slammed into a westbound Chevy Cruze.

Deputies say 15-year-old Chevy passenger Catherine Hancock died instantly. Her father and two young brothers were injured.

Authorities say 28-year-old Ford Fusion driver Jennifer Ashely Taft Bailey was airlifted to a Provo hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.

Deputies say an open container of alcohol was found in Taft Bailey’s car.
