SARATOGA SPRINGS, Utah — Emergency crews responded to fatal crashes in Saratoga Springs and Spanish Fork Canyon while two crashes caused heavy delays in Davis County Monday morning.

AnnElise Harrison, public relations specialist for Saratoga Springs, said a Hyundai passenger car was attempting to turn left into a Maverik gas station on Redwood Road near Ring Road when it was hit by an Alpine School District bus.

Officials said a woman, who was a passenger in the car was killed while the car’s driver was injured and airlifted to an area hospital.

The woman was identified as 20-year-old Lauren Scott of Saratoga Springs.

The driver, 19-year-old Caden Simmons, remains in critical condition.

Four students who were on the bus and the bus driver were not injured in the crash. No cause for the crash has been released, and authorities have not identified the victim.

No matter what caused the accident, it’s definitely tragic,” Harrison said.

One dead in semi crash on U.S. 6

In Spanish Fork Canyon, one person was killed in a crash involving a semi-truck on U.S. Highway 6.

Sgt. Cameron Roden with the Utah Highway Patrol said troopers were alternating traffic at milepost 185, near Diamond Fork.

No cause for that crash has been released.

Davis County drivers saw heavy delays on northbound Interstate 15 after a semi-truck rear-ended a box truck near 700 South in Clearfield.

Roden said both trucks were empty, and the driver of the semi-truck suffered minor injuries.

Two lanes will be blocked until the vehicles can be towed.
