Another car swerved to avoid a collision. Then the vehicle moved back into its lane, then onto the curb, hitting a man at his mailbox and striking a telephone pole near 200 W. Pages Lane.

Sgt. Gary Koehn of the Bountiful Police Department said, "The pedestrian who was struck was in satisfactory condition. The driver of the vehicle was in critical condition, and the passenger in the vehicle was a fatality."

Officers are still reviewing witness statements to determine if speed was a factor. They also will look into possible medical conditions or impairments that may have caused the crash.

And a collision between an SUV and a motorcycle left one man dead in Salt Lake.
