The death toll in a flash flood that reportedly washed away several vehicles in southern Utah has increased to 12 people with one person still unaccounted for.
Several vehicles were reportedly swept into waterways after heavy rains hit at approximately 5 p.m. (MT) on Monday, including two vehicles that had been carrying at least 16 people in Maxwell Canyon north of the city, said Kevin Barlow, assistant fire chief. The victims included women and small children, all from the Colorado City, Ariz., and Hildale, Utah, area. The towns are adjacent to each other across the state line. Source: USA Today
