TAYLORSVILLE, Utah — A pickup truck driver has died following a collision with a concrete pump truck in Taylorsville.
Sgt. Cameron Roden with the Utah Highway Patrol said the pump truck was disabled on Northbound Interstate 215 West, near the 4700 South on-ramp, Wednesday afternoon after blowing a tire.
Troopers were on scene, providing traffic control, when Roden said a red GMC pickup truck slammed into the back of the pump truck.
The driver of the pickup — who was identified Friday as 54-year-old Dan Wooden, of Salt Lake City — died from his injuries on scene.
The driver of the pump truck was uninjured.
I-215 West was reduced to two lanes for several hours Wednesday following the crash.
