HEBER CITY — One person was killed in a crash that temporarily closed U.S. Highway 40 near Strawberry Reservoir Sunday night.
Trooper Wright with the Utah Highway Patrol said a group of four snowmobilers attempted to cross the road near the Chicken Creek parking area in Wasatch County when one of the drivers pulled out in front of an eastbound semitruck.
The snowmobile was hit by the semi, killing the rider.
The individual killed in the collision was identified Tuesday as 44-year-old Christopher P. Brown of Farmington, Utah.
U.S. 40 was shut down through Sunday night and reopened Monday morning.
