EAGLE MOUNTAIN, Utah — The man accused of killing two people in a road-rage crash in Eagle Mountain in June will appear before a judge Friday.
Utah County Sherriff’s Office Sgt. Spencer Cannon said the incident it started when the suspect in an F-150 was tailgating another car for miles. Cannon said the suspect then rammed that car, causing him to spin out into oncoming traffic.
The truck struck a Porsche, killing 48-year-old Rodney Michal Salm and 47-year-old Michaela Himmelberger.
“If something happens, we need to just shake our head, back off,” said Cannon of the accident.
According to Cannon, Peterson Drew Matheson from Eagle Mountain was driving the F-150. Matheson turned himself in after the crash. He is scheduled in court at 9 a.m. Friday morning for a preliminary hearing.
Matheson is up against multiple manslaughter charges and a handful of other felony charges.
