Amanda Butterfield ReportingThe Utah Highway Patrol wants help finding a driver believed to be involved in a wreck that killed a couple on a motorcycle. It happened earlier this summer on I-15 during the Milford Flat fire.
For several months UHP has been hoping this man would contact them, but he hasn't. A sketch is a final attempt to make contact with the man. The sketch comes from firefighter and witness accounts. The white man is in his 60's or 70's, has white hair, was well dressed and was wearing glasses.
UHP Sgt. Jeff Nigbur said, "He is not considered a suspect by any means, just a potential witness that we really need to talk to, to piece the puzzle together."
Back in July, Rex and Mary Ann Redmond were traveling south on their motorcycle on I-15 when they drove straight into the thick smoke of the Milford Flat Fire. They were hit from behind by a driver in a white Subaru, thrown off the bike and run over. Both died instantly.
Troopers say the driver of the Subaru stopped at the scene and talked with officers. He was told to stay, but ended up leaving in all the confusion. They've never heard from him since.
Sgt. Jeff Nigbur says, :"We really, really thought this gentleman would try to make contact with us to say, ‘Hey, I was that guy that was involved. I would like to explain what happened."
UHP fears the man could be from out of state, and if they don't hear from him after releasing this sketch, they may never be able to find out who or where he is.
If the man looks familiar to you, call Utah Highway Patrol. He is not considered a suspect, he faces no charges right now. Officials just want to talk to him to get his account of what happened.
