Utah County Fatal Pedestrian Crash

Monday November 13, 2023

At approximately 6:25 am, on Monday, November 13, 2023, a single vehicle (Mitsubishi Lancer) crashed into the right-side concrete barrier near the gore area of the southbound exit to 500 East, American Fork. The driver of that vehicle got out of the car and walked into the southbound lanes of I-15 where he was struck and killed. Based on evidence and witness statements, it appears he was hit by two or maybe three vehicles in the number three lane. It is unknown why the vehicle initially crashed or why the subject walked into traffic.

There was also a passenger in the single vehicle that hit the wall. After the crash, that passenger climbed out of the car and walked away from the scene. With the assistance of American Fork Police, that passenger was located and taken into custody. It was discovered that he had several warrants and was unwilling to answer any questions about the crash or his involvement. Seatbelt marks confirmed that he was in the front passenger seat at the time of the crash.

All southbound lanes except for the HOV lane were closed for several hours during the investigation.
