RIVERSIDE, Box Elder County — A man died Wednesday morning after his car was T-boned at on state Route 30 in Riverside, Box Elder County, the Utah Highway Patrol said.

It was about 10:10 a.m. when a gray Honda Accord traveling north on 4400 West failed to stop at a stop sign, according to a news release from UHP. A green GMC pickup truck that was eastbound on state Route 30 collided with the Honda in the intersection.

The truck hit the driver's side of the Honda, causing both vehicles to spin northeast and come to a rest against each other, the release says. The man driving the Honda was killed on impact and pronounced dead at the scene, UHP said. The driver of the truck sustained minor injuries.

Alcohol is being investigated as a possible contributor to the crash, according to the release. A second possible contributor is a cement truck that was parked along the road in the southeast corner of the intersection, which UHP says blocked or partially blocked the view of the stop sign.

The identity of the man who died was not released.
