Fatal crash on I-15 at MM 227 near Nephi

Wednesday November 11, 2020

At 6:30 am on Nov. 11th, 2020, a 2005 Nissan truck was traveling north on Interstate 15 near mile marker 227. For an unknown reason, the 25-year-old male driver of the truck swerved left and into the median. The truck rotated counterclockwise and began rolling multiple times coming to rest facing south on the inside edge of the southbound travel lanes. The driver, and sole occupant, was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the truck. The driver landed in the southbound no. 2 travel lane. He died as a result of injuries sustained in the crash. Southbound I-15 was diverted at the Exit 228 off-ramps for approximately three hours while the investigation was completed. Lane travel and speed are contributors to the crash.

The deceased driver is Kaden S Simper, age 25, of Nephi.
