Fatal crash in Spanish Fork Canyon

Monday September 26, 2022

 On Monday, Sept 26, 2022, just prior to 7:00 am, a semi towing a box trailer was traveling westbound on US-6 in the area of mm185. For unknown reasons, the semi failed to negotiate the left-hand downhill curve and drove into the concrete barrier on the right edge of the roadway. The impact displaced the barrier, and the semi slid along the top of the barrier before rolling onto the north side of the road. The tractor caught fire and burned the cab down to the bare metal. The driver (single occupant) was killed in the incident. The westbound lanes of US-6 were closed, and traffic was alternated around the crash scene. At 11:00 am, crews opened on lane westbound and both eastbound lanes.
