NORTH OGDEN, Utah — Four people were taken to hospitals with serious injuries after a crash involving three vehicles in North Ogden Tuesday morning.
Wednesday afternoon, police released the names of two children who died as a result of their injuries: 13-year-old Troy Cox and 11-year-old Molly Cox. They were brother and sister.
North Ogden Police responded to 1750 North and 400 East around 8:24 a.m. Tuesday after receiving a report of the crash.
