IRON COUNTY, Utah — The Utah Department of Safety released the name of one of the two teenagers that were killed in a crash Friday night in Iron County. 

19-year-old Alexia De Campos died in a rollover crash Friday night. Another teen, a 17-year-old, was also killed but the DPS said it would not identify her by name because she was a minor.

The DPS said the two girls were riding in a car with three other people when the car crashed into a median on I-15.

The three other people in the car, including the driver, were all injured and taken to a hospital after the crash.

In a press release, the DPS said investigators were looking at speeding and lack of seatbelts as possible reasons for the crash.
