1 hospitalized, 1 dead after Cedar City truck-motorcycle crash

CEDAR CITY, UT – A 77-year-old man, driving a pickup truck, died, and a 27-year-old male motorcyclist was airlifted to the hospital after a crash before 10 p.m. Friday. 

St. George News said this collision occurred when the pickup truck driver did not yield to traffic as he drove on northbound SR-130 from 2900 North. As a result, a motorcyclist struck his driver’s door. 

The impact between the vehicles sent the truck swerving across the road, coming into contact with some gutters before hitting some car vacuums at the Tagg-N-Go Car Wash. 

Despite medics conducting life-saving measures, the 77-year-old man from Washington City (whose name was not released) was pronounced dead at the scene. First responders took the 27-year-old man from Enoch to an area hospital for treatment of serious injuries. 

Our newsroom will post additional updates, including the name of the 77-year-old man when it becomes publicly available.
