DRAPER, Utah — A car crashed across all lanes of traffic on Bangerter Highway while engulfed in fire. The crash claimed the driver’s life. 

Utah Highway Patrol responded to a car crash Tuesday morning. 

Officials said the driver was likely speeding when he exited onto Bangerter Highway from I-15 Northbound. 

KSL TV’s Matt Rascon spoke to officials on scene about the accident. 

They told Rascon, the driver crashed just before 3 a.m. at the top of the off ramp. He travelled across all the lanes on the highway and collided into the concrete barrier on the opposite side. He continued down the on ramp before finally coming to a stop. 

When first responders arrived, the care was on fire and the driver was dead. UHP believe speed was the biggest factor in the crash’s severity.

Officials conducted an investigation for several hours following the crash. They investigated the scene and cleaned up the wreckage from around 3a.m. to 8:30 a.m.
