10-year-old boy killed in rollover crash involving family of 8

SNOWVILLE, Box Elder County — A 10-year-old boy from Washington was killed Saturday when the minivan that he, his parents and five siblings were traveling in, rolled off I-84.

Tony N. Orlov, 10, of Lake Stevens, Washington, was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from a Sienna van at 9:20 p.m. about 8 miles east of Snowville, according to a statement from the Utah Highway Patrol.

A 9-year-old boy who was also not wearing a seat belt was partially ejected and was flown by medical helicopter to Primary Children's Hospital in serious condition, according to the UHP.

The boy's father, mother, three sisters — ages 7, 12, 14 — and oldest brother, 13, were all wearing seat belts and suffered minor injuries. They were treated at Bear River Valley Hospital and later released.

According to the UHP, the mother became "temporarily distracted" while driving and drifted into the median. He overcorrected to the right and went across both lanes of the freeway and off the right side of the road, rolling the van at least 1 ½ times with the vehicle coming to rest on its roof, the UHP stated.
