WEBER COUNTY, Utah —One person died in a fiery head-on crash on Interstate 15 in the Riverdale area early Sunday, the Department of Public Safety said.

That crash came just hours after another crash killed two people late Saturday on state Route 202 near I-80 at the Saltair exit, according to the Unified Police Department.

Weber County dispatchers took the call for Sunday’s head-on crash at approximately 2:56 a.m. according to the DPS website.

A driver was headed northbound in the southbound lanes of I-15 when it smashed into a fully loaded semi-truck near 400 North.

The crash caused a fire that fully engulfed the vehicles for several hours, state troopers said.

The driver of the semi and a passenger escaped the truck with non-life-threatening injuries. DPS said the driver of the wrong-way car died. It’s not clear if there was a passenger in the car.

Responders ended up closing the interstate in both directions from 2700 North in Pleasant View to 400 North in Marriott-Slaterville.

Late Saturday, two people died in a crash on S.R. 202. There was a concert happening at The Great Saltair when the vehicles crashed, police said.

UPD identified the dead victims Sunday as 20-year-old Victoria Keanea Thompson, of Whiterocks, Utah, and 35-year-old Feilokitau Kaho Fiefia, of South Jordan.

S.R. 202 was closed between S.R. 201 and I-80 while troopers investigated.
