2 CALIFORNIA MEN KILLED INSTANTLY IN 1-CAR CRASH ON I-15 NEAR MONA

Two 18-year-old California men were killed in a one-car accident on I-15 four miles north of Mona Thursday morning.

Killed in the accident were:Donald Lee Caron, Mira Loma, Calif.

Raymond Anthony Marrero Jr., Anaheim, Calif.

Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Blair Bradford said the two were killed instantly when the car, driven by Caron, hit a drainage ditch about 6:30 a.m. He said the two were en route to the Wyoming Technical Institute to attend school.

Bradford said the vehicle was northbound when it came up behind two cars on the two-lane freeway. He said Caron apparently attempted to pass on the right, veered into the emergency lane and went off onto the shoulder where the car hit a drain culvert embankment.

Both men were wearing seat belts.
