Fatal Motorcycle Collision on South Weber Dr

Tuesday July 4, 2023

[Davis County, July 3, 2023] – Yesterday, on Monday, July 3, 2023, a devastating collision occurred on South Weber Dr near Cooks Cove, resulting in the loss of two lives.

At approximately 3:20 pm, a black Yamaha motorcycle with two occupants was traveling eastbound on South Weber Dr. While navigating a curve, the motorcycle drifted out of its lane and into the path of a westbound Dodge Ram pickup pulling a utility trailer. The collision took place in the westbound lanes as the driver’s side of the Dodge and the motorcycle collided.

Regrettably, both occupants of the motorcycle, a 54-year-old male driver and a 39-year-old female passenger, sustained critical injuries and tragically passed away at the scene. Our thoughts and condolences go out to their loved ones during this immensely difficult time.

The driver of the Dodge Ram pickup, fortunately, remained unharmed in the incident.

Following the collision, South Weber Dr. was closed to facilitate the investigation and cleanup efforts. Traffic was redirected to Cooks Cove and Canyon Meadows for three to four hours. The investigation aims to gather comprehensive information to determine the factors contributing to this tragic accident.
