(KSL News) -- A fatal crash today on State Road 36. The cause was drowsy driving.

A Chevy Blazer broadsided Shane Davey's car as he turned left off Village Boulevard onto SR 36. Davey died at the scene.

UHP troopers say the Chevy driver, Darren Dilleshaw, fell asleep at the wheel.

Troopers say drowsy driving causes too many accidents in Utah.

Lt. Mike Rappich, Utah Highway Patrol: "If you start getting drowsy, you need to pull over. Give yourself some time to be refreshed. Take a break, rest for a while if you need to. Drowsy drivers cause a lot of serious crashes. In this case it had tragic results."

The other driver suffered minor injuries.
