(KUTV) — One person is dead after two cars crash on Interstate 15 in Iron County near Parowan.

Utah Department of Public Safety reported that around 1:45 p.m., a van lost control and swerved back onto the road, hitting another smaller car.

The impact sent the smaller car into a fence and rolled the van.

An 8-year-old boy was ejected from the van and died at the scene. Police identified the boy as Jonathan Chapman.

Five others inside the van were all taken to a hospital to treat injuries. All occupants were wearing seat belts. Police believe that Chapman could have been wearing his seat belt incorrectly or that it did not fit him.

The passengers in the smaller car were wearing seat belts and had no injuries.
