A Moab teenager was killed when his compact car struck a pickup truck head-on Thursday night on a southeastern Utah stretch of State Road 191.

The Utah Highway Patrol identified the deceased as 16-year-old Kayden Cresswell.

Cresswell was driving a Chevrolet Cobalt northbound about 7:30 p.m., about 3 miles south of Moab, when he crossed the center line and struck a southbound Toyota Tundra.

Cresswell, who was not wearing a seat belt, was killed instantly.

The driver of the Tundra, 40-year-old Kai Malloy, of Moab, was transported to the hospital in serious condition.
