ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) - Troopers are investigating a high-speed car crash south of St. George that killed one man and left another in critical condition.

The Utah Highway Patrol says both men were traveling in a Corvette westbound on State Route 7 around 4 p.m. Saturday.

The car somehow became airborne while crossing near the River Road exit and crashed into a guardrail.

The front of the car was lodged under the guardrail and slid about 200 feet.

Troopers say the driver, 32-year-old Colin Wiest of St. George, was killed.

Passenger Dustin L. Cummings, a 27-year-old from Washington, Utah, was hospitalized in critical condition.

Both men were wearing seat belts.

Trooper Jalaine Hawkes said Sunday that officials are still trying to determine how fast the car was going and why it became airborne.
