SPRINGVILLE — One man was killed and another injured after two trucks collided in Springville Thursday morning, Springville Lt. Warren Foster said.

Trucks driven by Robert James Talbot, 65, and Kasey Bartlett, 20, collided on Highway 77 at 400 S. 2600 West around 11:35 a.m. Officers were called to the area and found a Dodge truck on its roof and a second truck pulling a horse trailer off the road.

Bartlett was extricated from the truck pulling the horse trailer and flown in a medical helicopter to Utah Valley Regional Medical Center. He was treated for his injuries, including a concussion and later released from the hospital.

Talbot was ejected from the Dodge truck and pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash closed Highway 77 in both directions for a few hours.

The cause of the accident is still unknown and is being investigated by the Springville Police Department and the Utah Highway Patrol.
