SALT LAKE CITY — Two people are dead following a pair of separate car crashes Thursday in Salt Lake City.

According to Salt Lake City Police, the first incident was a rollover crash in the area of 4000 W. 2100 N.. It happened near the Salt Lake City International Airport at 1:59 p.m.

When emergency personnel arrived on the scene, they found the driver unconscious. They performed life-saving-procedures on the victim. Police say, however, the man passed away at the scene. There were no other occupants in the car.

In the early stages of the investigation, police say the driver lost control of the vehicle as he was traveling westbound on 2100 N.. According to police, the vehicle rolled several times after leaving the road and came to a stop a good distance from the road.

The identity of the victim has not been released as the next of kin is still being notified.
