Heber teenager killed, 3 others hurt in rollover

HEBER CITY — One teenager was killed and three others were hurt in a rollover on U.S. 40 early Sunday.

The crash occurred at 2:15 a.m. when a car went off the road and into the median, said Utah Department of Public Safety spokesman Cameron Rodan. The car traveled 500 feet in the median, then rolled several times and landed on its wheels on the other side of the highway.

The crash claimed 16-year-old Shelby McAffee of Heber City and left the driver, 17-year-old Elijah Smith, also of Heber City, in critical condition. Smith was being treated Monday at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center. He has been unable to talk with police about the crash.

Passenger Riley Mair, 17, sustained head lacerations, and passenger Hayleah Noel Smith, 15, suffered a hip injury. Both were taken to local hospitals for treatment and had been released by Monday. The passengers are also Heber City residents.

None of the four victims was wearing a seat belt, and all were ejected from the vehicle, Rodan said.
