UTAH COUNTY, Utah — A man was killed after his car lost control due to slick roads and crashed into another spun-out car Sunday afternoon.
According to the Utah Highway Patrol, a white Tesla sedan was traveling southbound on Interstate 15 near milepost 240 when it lost control due to slushy conditions.
