CACHE COUNTY, UT – A 45-year-old man who drove a Polaris Ranger UTV was killed after he was struck by a Ford F-150 pickup truck on State Route 23 Wednesday.
According to the Utah Department of Public Safety, this collision took place around 7:45 a.m. near 4600 N. As indicated in this press release, the Polaris driver “allowed the lead vehicle of two to pass by and then attempted to cross SR-23 between vehicles.”
When the Polaris driver attempted to cross, that’s when he collided with the Ford F-150. As a result, the UTV was struck broadside, and the 45-year-old man was thrown from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The area was blocked for three hours so that officials could investigate the specifics of this crash. All lanes have reopened since.
