SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City Police Department has confirmed the identity of a man killed in a motorcycle accident on August 3.

David Alexander Kluger, age 48, died in the accident near 1300 East Stringham Ave. The crash closed the area for several hours.

 In a tweet, Rabbi Avremi Zippel said Kluger had been a paramedic and firefighter, as well a beloved member of his community.


The SLCPD responded at 7:35 a.m. to a crash between an SUV and a motorcycle.

When officers arrived they found the motorcyclists laying on the roadway. The SLCPD said bystanders at the scene took life-saving measures but the driver died at the scene.

Police said the driver of the SUV stayed on the scene and was cooperating with the investigation.

The SLCPD believes the SUV and the motorcycle collided at the intersection of 1300 East and 2290 South.

Police noted that the motorcyclist’s death was the third traffic-related fatality in Salt Lake City this week and the 21st this year.
