PERRY, Box Elder County — A 16-year-old girl is dead after a head-on car collision Friday.

Killed was:

Brianna Moss, 16, Willard, Box Elder County.

The girl was attempting to turn left on U.S. 89 near Sumida's Fruit Stand in Perry when she crossed into the path of a pickup truck. Both drivers tried to avoid the other but eventually collided in the center turn lane.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts, said Utah Highway Patrol trooper Scott Singleton. Emergency crews extricated Moss from the car and transported her to Brigham City Community Hospital, where she later died.

The driver of the pickup truck was transported to Logan Hospital with bruises and abrasions.
