US 40 shots fired incident

Wednesday June 30, 2021

On Monday, June 28, 2021 at about 5:00 am a Red semi was traveling eastbound on US-40 at milepost 48 near Strawberry Reservoir. The vehicle was being followed by a silver SUV that is similar to a Honda CRV or Hyundai Santa Fe. When those vehicles reach a section with 2 eastbound lanes, they both passed a slower moving vehicle. Shortly after that, the SUV pulled up alongside the semi. The driver of the semi heard several shots (about three). One hit the driver window and one behind the driver door area. The driver was not hit and slowed to get away from the vehicle. The Silver SUV continued eastbound and did not stop. The semi continued eastbound then stopped and called police. Troopers Responded and began an investigation. They are being assisted by the State Bureau of Investigations. The only description of the suspect was a light skinned male with dark hair. Troopers looked for vehicles that matched the suspect vehicle description but could not locate it. If the public has any information to help us locate the SUV driver, they can contact the Utah Highway Patrol dispatch at 801-887-3800.
