LEHI, Utah — The Utah Highway Patrol says one person died Friday afternoon following a crash that involved an emergency vehicle in Lehi near southbound I-15. 

According to Trooper Quincy Breur, of the UHP, the crash occurred at 12:37 p.m. Friday. The UHP was asked to investigate the crash by Lehi City as it involved a fire truck from the Lehi Fire Department that was responding to a call with its sirens on.

Breur says the fire truck was heading westbound on SR-92. As it approached the intersection, it collided with a Chevy Spark that was coming down the I-15 off-ramp. The UHP says it was a T-bone style crash. 

Breur says the 20-year-old female driver of the Chevy suffered fatal injuries and passed away at the scene. The firefighters in the truck suffered minor injuries. 

The westbound lanes of SR-92 were closed for more than four hours.

Lehi City issued a statement Friday night, it read:

“We are aware that our Lehi Fire Engine 83 was responding to a commercial fire alarm call when they were involved in a motor vehicle accident resulting in a fatality. Our hearts go out to all involved and affected by this tragic accident,” the statement read.
