SALT LAKE CITY — Troopers have released the names of several people killed in crashes since last Friday across Utah.

At least three people were killed on Utah's roads over the 4th of July weekend, and others died late last week and early this week.

  • On Friday, a westbound vehicle on S.R. 9 near Quail Creek Drive crossed over into the eastbound lanes, hitting and killing the driver of a pickup truck, 23-year-old Deliberto A. Pablo-Cruz, of St. George.
  • Timothy L. Hood, 52, of Redmond in Sevier County, was driving a Harley Davidson on Interstate 70 near Sevier, when the motorcycle left the road to the left and went into the median. Hood died later that day at a hospital.
  • Paul Denton, 54, of Frisco, Texas, was driving a Victory motorcycle north on S.R. 12, south of Grover, in Wayne County on Saturday when he failed to negotiate a curve in the road and went off an embankment. He died later Saturday at the hospital due to injuries sustained during the crash.
  • Tyler Kinder, 31, of Salt Lake City, was riding a Yamaha motorcycle onto northbound Interstate 15 from the U.S. 89 northbound on-ramp near the Salt Lake County and Davis County line when he lost control, hitting a barrier and then getting hit by other vehicles. He died on scene.
