Juab, UT Two Car Head On Crash, Jun 1967


Nephi, Utah (UPI) - Eight persons died early Sunday in a grinding two-car head-on collision on U.S. Highway 91, four miles south of Nephi.
There were no survivors in the crash which killed six members of a Salt Lake County family, including four children.
The accident was the fifth worst traffic accident in Utah's history.
Killed in the one car were:
MRS. THORA PETERSON, 45, of Salt Lake City, driver of the northbound car;
MRS. LUCY SPENCER, 33, of Kearns;
and MRS. SPENCER'S four children; ELAINE, 11; CINTHIA, 9; VAL, 5; and ALAN TROY, 3 months.
Killed in the second car were:
TERRY LEE ROSENVALL, 28, of Salt Lake City, formerly of Gunnison, Sanpete County, and believed to have been the driver;
and CECIL JUNIOR LUTTRELL, between 40 and 50, believed to be from Seattle, Wash., but living in Salt Lake City.
Sgt. Eldon C. Sherwood of the Utah Highway Patrol said the accident was the worst he had seen in his 25 years of law enforcement work.
The two men were headed south and the other victims were traveling in the opposite direction, returning from a visit with relatives in Sigurd, Sevier County.
Investigating officers said all four adults were thrown out of the cars, and the children remained in the one vehicle.
The two women were sisters and had been visiting in Sigurd with their parents, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Colby.
