HEBER CITY — A Heber City man is dead and another person was seriously injured after a two-vehicle crash on U.S. 40 Thursday.

On Saturday, the man who died was identified as Michael Rivera-Vazquez, 20.

About 5 p.m. Thursday, a 2007 Subaru Impreza was traveling east on the highway when it veered left across the center turn lane. The Subaru Impreza traveled into the westbound travel lanes and struck a 2020 Chevy Silverado truck head-on, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.
