2 died in Kearns crash, driver booked on charges

KEARNS, Colo. (AP) - Police say a married couple has died after the car they were passengers in slammed into a wall and then a house in Kearns.

Lt. Justin Hoyal says the driver, 29-year-old Christopher Youngblood, has been booked on automobile homicide charges because investigators believe speed and alcohol were factors.

The crash occurred about 4 p.m. Saturday at West Highwood Drive in Kearns.

Hoyal says Youngblood's car traveling fast when it apparently went out of control and struck the wall and then the house.

Police identified the passengers who died as the driver's sister, 31-year-old Erica Youngblood, and her husband, 29-year-old Michael Dye.

The driver was treated and released from the hospital.
