Wrong way driver causes fatal crash on I-15 in Lindon

Wednesday May 20, 2020

        On May 19th, 2020, at 11:35 PM, UHP Dispatchers received reports of a vehicle traveling northbound in the southbound lanes of I-15 at MM 273 in Lindon.  There was a collision between that vehicle and a southbound vehicle.  The driver of one of the vehicles, a 28-year-old male, was unrestrained and likely killed on impact.  The driver of the other vehicle, a 22-year-old female, was transported to the hospital in serious condition.  Evidence and witness interviews have given Troopers and SBI investigators a pretty good idea as to which of the two vehicles involved may have been going wrong way. However, until we have 100% certainty, we will refrain from providing that detail at this time.

The deceased driver is Teke Joseph Grondel, age 28, of Plain City, Utah.
