TOOELE COUNTY, Utah — One person died and two others were injured after a crash early Saturday morning in Tooele County.
The Utah Department of Public Safety said around 3:30 a truck headed eastbound on I-80 veered sharply into the westbound lanes and collided with a Genesis passenger car.
Investigators were not sure why the truck left its lane.
UHP said the pickup driver was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected. The driver died on the scene.
A tweet said, “One occupant from the Genesis was transported to an area hospital by air ambulance, in critical condition. An ambulance transported a second occupant with non-life threatening injuries.”
Westbound lanes of I-80 were closed for several hours while police investigated. The lanes are now open.
