A Utah teenager was killed and three others injured during a weekend single-vehicle rollover crash in Mohave County, Ariz.

Mohave County sheriff’s spokeswoman Trish Carter said the accident occurred when the Jeep Wrangler carrying the four people rolled on BLM Road 1069, about 30 miles south of St. George, Utah, at 11:45 p.m. Saturday.

The Jeep, believed to be traveling at a high rate of speed, left the roadway and rolled, ejecting 18-year-old passenger Brooks Johnson, of Santa Clara. He was dead at the scene, Carter said.

The driver, Connor Livingston, 20, of Ivins, Utah, along with two other passengers identified as Brayden Oaks, 18, of Washington, Utah, and Jace William Graft, 20, of Ivins, were taken to Dixie Regional Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries.

Carter said that while speed appeared to have been a factor, alcohol was not.

The accident remained under investigation on Monday.
