S.L. MAN KILLED IN CRASH; 2 DIE NEAR BRIGHAM CITY

A Salt Lake man died Monday while eluding police, and two men were killed in an accident Tuesday near Brigham City.

Killed were:Alejandro Rios, 24, Salt Lake

Fred Braithwaite, 39, Corinne

an unidentified male passenger, 34.

Salt Lake City police officer Gary Young attempted to stop Rios after the man allegedly made an illegal U-turn Monday and sped off.

The officer terminated the chase, but Rios continued on at a high rate of speed, eventually losing control of his vehicle, a Jaguar, crashing into a tree near 300 South and 800 East.

Braithwaite and his passenger died Tuesday when their car was broadsided by an oncoming pickup truck west of Brigham City, a Box Elder county sheriff's dispatcher said.

Braithwaite was at the wheel of the car and was attempting to turn left across U-13 at 4 p.m. when his car and the truck collided, the dispatcher said.
