National Park Service officials say Carol Cook, 57, of Woodbine was driving when she went off the road and hit a tree. She was dead at the scene just outside the Park’s entrance station.

A male relative was taken to a hospital in southern Utah for treatment of minor injuries after Tuesday’s accident.

Both people in the vehicle were wearing seat belts.
