NORTH SALT LAKE, Utah — Family and friends gathered at Hatch Park Saturday for a memorial to honor their loved one who was killed last week by a wrong-way driver.
Greg Workman was riding his motorcycle north on Interstate 15, near 2600 South, when the deadly crash happened.
The wrong-way driver hit Workman’s motorcycle, then swerved and hit a Ford Fusion, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.
Four people were hospitalized following the crash.
After losing their friend to one of the many wrong-way crashes in Utah this year, Workman’s loved ones are calling for change.
“I can’t bring my brother back, but I can help to make sure that this doesn’t happen to anyone else,” said Katie Workman, Greg’s sister. “And we would like to formally ask the Utah State Legislature to work us with after this session is over on drafting a bill that can help make sure that no one else has to lose someone like Greg.”
Greg’s sister says Florida, Arizona and Rhode Island have all put in place infrastructure to help reduce wrong-way crashes, and she ways riders aren’t safe until Utah makes a change.
