The Stearns County Sheriff's Department says the vehicle the two deceased men were in crossed into the opposite lane on County Road 2 and was hit by an oncoming car.

The teenage girl has been identified as Katie Seegmiller, 15, also from Washington City. She had been reported missing on Jan. 23 and Utah officials were growing more concerned with each day because she has cystic fibrosis, the St. George News reports
