Fatal Crash in Iron County on SR-56

Tuesday April 28, 2020

DPS Incident Notification 7877 (Crash – Fatal / Supplemental Information / Sent: 04-28-2020  12:29)

Section: 11 // District:

Date: 04-28-2020

Time: 06:51

Location: SR-56, Iron Springs Road

Mile Post: 56

Travel Direction: West

Inv. Agency: Utah Highway Patrol

Initial Description:
        On April 28, 2020 at approximately 6:51 hours a black Mitsubishi Eclipse, driven by Tyrell T Robinson, age 24, of Cedar City was traveling southbound on Iron Springs Road approaching SR-56. The Mitsubishi stopped at the intersection of SR-56 and was preparing to make a left hand turn, to travel eastbound on SR-56. A large commercial vehicle was traveling westbound on SR-56 in the right hand turn lane to travel northbound on Iron Springs Road. A Ford F-350 pulling a trailer, occupied by a 58 year old male driver was traveling westbound on SR-56 in the number two lane approaching the intersection with Iron Springs Road. The driver of the Mitsubishi pulled into the intersection to turn left and was struck on the driver’s door by the westbound Ford F-350, in a T-bone style collision. The impact forced both vehicles into the eastbound travel lanes where they came to rest. Mr. Robinson, the driver of the Mitsubishi, suffered fatal injuries and passed away at the crash scene. He was not wearing a seat belt, but due to the severity and location of the impact, the outcome likely would have been the same. The driver of the Ford F-350 was wearing a seat belt and was not injured. It is unknown at this time why Mr. Robinson pulled in front of the Pick-up truck, but it appears he may not have seen the truck due to the location of the commercial vehicle approaching the intersection in the right hand turn lane. Eastbound and westbound lanes were closed intermittently during the on-scene investigation but have since reopened.
