Two Utah men have been killed in separate traffic accidents.

Killed were:Chad Olson, 19, Hyde Park, Cache County.

Rulon Arthur Foster, 74, Washington County.

Olson was killed when his car rolled on U.S. 91 just north of Pocatello. Olson was attempting to pass a motor home about 6:25 p.m. Monday when he swerved to avoid an oncoming vehicle. Idaho State Police said Olson's car rolled twice, ejecting Olson, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Foster was killed Tuesday night when his car was broadsided by a van at the intersection of U-9 and U-17. The van, whose Omaha, Neb., occupants wore seat belts and were not hurt, ran the stop sign and hit Foster's car. Foster was taken to Dixie Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
