Car crash in West Jordan leaves one man dead
WEST JORDAN, Utah — A 67-year-old Taylorsville man is dead after a Sunday morning crash.
According to Sargent Brian Schaaf with the West Jordan Police Department, reports of a car accident near 7300 S. Bangerter came in at around 8 a.m.
Schaaf says a medical event could have led to the single-vehicle crash.
“It looks like this driver may have drifted to the left and hit the center barrier, and then off to the right off [of] the road,” he said.
The driver of the vehicle, Schaaf says, was pronounced dead shortly after police arrived on the scene.
The incident caused the southbound lanes to briefly close, but all lanes should now be open.
