Details on the fatal crash on I-15 SB at MM 319 in Davis County
At approximately 1132 hours, on May 13th, 2020, a passenger vehicle was traveling southbound on I-15 in Centerville near mile marker 319. The driver was in a center lane of I-15 when they realized they needed to take the Parrish Lane off ramp. They crossed the right lane into the gore area for the off-ramp striking the attenuator. The vehicle came to a rest in the right travel lane of the main-flow portion of the interstate. A semi truck that was slightly behind the crash saw what happened and stopped his semi truck in the lane to protect the disabled/crashed vehicle. A third vehicle, a 1994 Nissan Sentra, was traveling in the right lane. For an unknown reason, the elderly male driver of the Sentra impacted the stopped semi’s trailer at full freeway speed. The elderly male driver was the sole occupant in the Sentra and did not survive the impact.
The deceased driver is Kenneth E Johnston, age 74, of Wood Cross.
