CACHE COUNTY, UT – The Utah Department of Public Safety has confirmed the name of the 45-year-old man who was killed in a crash between a Polaris Ranger and a Ford F-150 pickup truck.
This collision occurred around 7:45 a.m. near 4600 North on the westbound lanes of Utah 23, according to DPS News. They said the 45-year-old man – Shad Roundy from Cache Junction – was operating his Polaris Ranger UTV and allowed a driver behind him to pass.
After Roundy pulled over to allow the other automobile to pass, he tried to then go back onto the road and cross SR-23 between two vehicles on the road. His attempt was unsuccessful, as the driver of the Ford F-150 struck Roundy’s vehicle broadside. The force of this collision caused Roundy to be thrown from his vehicle.
As a result, Roundy suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
It is unclear if the truck driver was hurt.
