SALT LAKE CITY — One person is dead after a wrong-way driver hit another car in North Salt Lake Sunday morning. Two others were transported to the hospital, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.

On Monday, the Department of Public Safety identified the victim as Wiacan Reddye, 27, of Roy. The DPS also said that charges are being screened through the county attorney’s office.

Trooper Luis Silva with the UHP said the wrong-way driver was driving a red Toyota Camry. The Camry crashed into a red Chevrolet Impala traveling north on Legacy Parkway at milepost 3 near 500 South at 6:30 a.m.

The passenger of the Chevrolet Impala was killed, Silva said. Both drivers were transported to the hospital in stable condition.

Silva said the driver of the Camry is suspected to have been under the influence at the time of the crash, but it is still under investigation. Silva said at approximately 9 a.m. Sunday the northbound direction of Legacy Parkway was expected to be closed for a few more hours.
