LINDON, Utah (AP) — Authorities have identified a man killed after his car struck two vehicles on Interstate 15 near Lindon.
The Utah Highway Patrol says 59-year-old Juan Lopez, of West Valley City, was pronounced dead at a hospital Friday.
According to UHP spokeswoman Mary Kaye Lucas, Lopez's Pontiac Aztek was traveling southbound at 11:30 a.m. when it veered to the right.
The car then struck a Ford F-150 pickup truck.
Construction staples from the truck then spilled out into the lanes.
The UHP says Lopez's car crossed the freeway and hit a center barrier.
The impact sent the Aztek into an airport shuttle van.
The van then hit another truck.
A passenger in the van was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Lucas says a medical condition may have been a factor.
