SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A 10-year-old boy from Washington state has died in a car crash in northern Utah.

The Utah Highway Patrol says the crash happened just before 9:30 p.m. Saturday on I-84 about 8 miles east of Snowville near the Idaho border.

Troopers say the driver became distracted and drifted into the median.

As a result, the car went off the road and rolled before landing on its roof.

Troopers say 10-year-old Tony Orlov, of Lake Stevens, Washington, died at the scene. He was not wearing a seat belt.



A 9-year-old boy suffered serious injuries and is hospitalized in stable condition.

Authorities say the boy’s mother - who was driving - father, 13-year-old brother and three sisters between ages 7 and 14 suffered minor injuries.

They have all been treated and released.
