Garland teenager killed in vehicle rollover

UHP troopers investigating single vehicle rollover on I-15 near Willard Bay.

A 17-year-old Garland, Utah girl was killed and an 18-year-old boy from Bothwell was injured, after a single-vehicle rollover Friday night on Interstate-15, near Willard Bay.

Utah Highway Patrol troopers report Candice Wines was driving a black 1996 Toyota truck southbound, when she drifted lanes, over corrected and rolled two or three times. The vehicle came to rest on its roof.

Wines was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the vehicle. She initially had a faint pulse. A medical helicopter was called and CPR was performed for about 30 minutes before she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Lander Kern was also not wearing a seat belt and was thrown around inside the vehicle. He was transported to the hospital by ambulance with minor injuries and later released.

UHP said southbound lanes of I-15 were shut down near exit 357, while troopers and medical personal treated the victims.

Troopers said Wines would have likely survived Friday’s crash if she would have been wearing a seat belt.
