An Arizona woman and a California man were killed in separate one-vehicle accidents Friday in southern Utah.

DEAD:Barbara Cagle Linge, 42, of Beaver Dam, Ariz.

Francis E. Carnicom, 72, of San Diego, Calif.

Linge was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident that occurred 14 miles west of St. George, said Utah Highway Patrol dispatcher Karen Clayson.

Linge was driving west on old U.S. 91 at about 10:30 a.m. when she lost control of her vehicle. The car swerved to the left side of the road where she was partially ejected. The vehicle then rolled over her and she was thrown clear, Clayson said.

Carnicom was killed after the right rear tire of the vehicle he was riding in blew on I-15, 27 miles north of St. George. The car was driven by his wife, Kathleen Carnicom, 71.

When the tire blew, Mr. Carnicom grabbed the steering wheel, sending it out of control and off of the road to the left into the median where it rolled onto its top. The victims were assisted out of the vehicle by a passer-by.

He was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at Dixie Medical Center in St. George. It appeared he died of a heart attack, Clayton said.

Mrs. Carnicom was in fair condition Saturday with lacerations and possible broken ribs at the medical center.
