TAYLORSVILLE — A multiple-car crash on Redwood Road near 6200 South on Wednesday left one man dead and sent one person to the hospital.

The incident occurred about 8:07 p.m. when an eastbound vehicle ran a red light and collided with three other cars, including the northbound vehicle of the critically-injured man, police said.

One person suffered minor injuries while the other — a man in his 30s — was transported to Intermountain Medical Center in Murray in “extremely critical condition” as of Wednesday night, Unified Police Sgt. Melody Gray said.

The man, later identified as Andrew Steven Miller Jenkins, 35, of Cottonwood Heights, died from his injuries, Unified police confirmed Thursday morning.

The crash was under investigation and crews were on scene reconstructing the wreck. There is no evidence impairment was a factor in the crash, police said.

Northbound, eastbound and westbound lanes were closed but reopened before midnight.
