Hyrum • Authorities have arrested an 18-year-old man who Cache County deputies say caused a fatal crash earlier this month when he tried to pass another vehicle on a narrow road.

Emiliano Guereca is being held in Cache County Jail on suspicion of automobile homicide, reckless driving, improper passing, driving under the influence and possession of marijuana.

Authorities say 72-year-old Hyrum resident Duane Labrum died in the three-car crash that happened between Hyrum and Nibley the morning of Nov. 6.

Investigators say Guereca attempted to pass a fellow northbound vehicle, but ended up clipping it and then hitting Labrum's vehicle head-on.

Labrum was pronounced dead, while two other people were taken to the hospital with injuries.
