Motorcycle fatal crash in Salt Lake County. (Updated 11/5/21)

Wednesday November 3, 2021

On November 3, 2021 at approximately 1700 hours, traffic was slowing on I-80 westbound near mile post 106.5.  A motorcycle traveling in the left lane skidded for approximately 140 feet before being struck from behind by a pickup truck.  The rider of the motorcycle was ejected off the bike and sustained fatal injuries.  No injuries were sustained by the driver of the pickup truck.  The motorcycle rider was wearing a full face helmet which was knocked off during the impact as it appears it was not properly strapped to the rider.  I-80 was closed at 7200 West for the scene investigation and traffic was diverted to the frontage road.  MCIT, SBI, and UDOT were all contacted and are assisting.
