SPANISH FORK — An 18-year-old man was killed in a head-on collision with a pickup truck Friday at the intersection of U.S. Highway 6 and Expressway Lane, officials said.
The man was traveling north on U.S. Highway 6 in a green Saturn passenger car about 8:45 a.m. when he collided with a GMC pickup truck that was waiting in the southbound left turn lane, according to Spanish Fork Police Lt. Brandon Anderson. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
The 18-year-old was transported to Utah Valley Hospital in critical condition but died soon after he arrived.
The driver of the pickup truck, a 71-year-old Riverton resident, was transported to the hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, Spanish Fork city spokesman Scott Aylett said in an emailed statement. No one else was injured in the crash.
Police said the 18-year-old is from Idaho but was staying with family members in Spanish Fork.
The two drivers' identities have not yet been released, pending notification of family.
