HUNTSVILLE, Utah (AP) - Police say a 14-year-old Huntsville boy was killed when the car driven by his father hit black ice and lost control.

The Weber County Sheriff’s office says the boy’s father drove over a patch of black ice Wednesday evening, slid across the opposite lanes and struck a guard rail before colliding with a Jeep heading the other direction.

The boy was identified Thursday as Leland Williams.

His father was treated for injuries at a hospital and later released.

Lt. Lane Findlay says the driver of the Jeep tried to avoid the car but wasn’t able to do so in time. Two adults in the Jeep were hospitalized with minor wounds.
