SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The fire chief of a Utah city has been killed in a head-on highway collision with two trucks.
The Utah Highway Patrol says Green River Fire Chief Philip Engleman was driving on U.S. Route 6 Sunday when his car crossed over the road’s center line and struck the semitractor-trailer trucks.
Authorities say Engleman died at the scene of the accident. The truck drivers were not injured in the crash.
