SALT LAKE CITY — Police have identified one of two people killed in a fiery crash at 500 S. 1110 East in Salt Lake City on Friday afternoon.
Jeoffry Dahl, 77, died Friday evening at a local hospital, according to Salt Lake City police. Another man, who police have not yet identified, was pronounced dead at the crash scene.
Emergency crews responded to the crash around 3:40 p.m. Friday. A Subaru Forester was rear-ended and flipped over, spun around and caught fire, according to SLC Police Detective Richard Chipping.
The car was quickly engulfed in flames after the crash, he said. There was only one occupant of the Subaru.
A passenger in the second car was still being treated as of Friday evening. The cause of the crash is still unknown.
Traffic was blocked between the University of Utah and 900 South as crews cleaned up the site.
TRAX Red Line service also was interrupted from Friday through early Saturday morning because a major support catenary pole was damaged and needed to be replaced, according to UTA spokesman Remi Barron.
