Utah Highway Patrol troopers Sunday identified two people killed in a crash on State Route 201 late Saturday.

Troopers said Mallory Robinson, 20, of Tooele, was westbound on State Route 201 about 10:10 p.m. in a Mazda Protege when a Toyota Highlander driven by Joseph B. Rawls, 53, of Lehi, pulled out in front of her at the intersection of State Route 202.

Troopers said Robinson swerved to the left, but the two vehicles collided in a T-bone-type crash.

Rawls and Robinson's passenger, Beverly Maestas, 22, of Tooele, were pronounced dead at the scene.

Robinson and two other passengers in her vehicle, Mario Trujillo, 22, and Lenny Trujillo, 19, suffered head injuries and were transported to area hospitals. The Trujillos also suffered internal injuries, troopers said.

Rawls, Robinson and Maestas were wearing seat belts, but the two Trujillos were not, troopers said.

Speed was not a factor in the crash, and neither driver was believed to have been impaired, troopers said.
