SHARE TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS CLAIM LEHI, W. BOUNTIFUL MEN

A two-car accident in Lehi killed a local man Tuesday. A West Bountiful man died after he suffered a heart attack and his tanker truck ran off the road in Murray.

Killed in the accidents were:Lynn Crawley, 36, Lehi.

John W. Niebuhr, 49, West Bountiful.

Crawley was eastbound on U-73 at approximately 8:30 a.m. when his truck was struck by a vehicle headed north on U-68 and driven by Stanley Rose, 73, Morgan, Utah Highway Patrol dispatchers said.

UHP troopers and Lehi police and fire officers responded to the scene within minutes. Both men were taken by ambulance to American Fork Hospital.

Crawley was declared dead on arrival, while Rose remains in satisfactory condition.

Troopers said roads may have been slick because of ice and visibility was decreased because of fog.

- Niebuhr apparently suffered a heart attack, and his tanker truck rolled off the road near 800 West and 5300 South in Murray about 8:15 a.m.

The double-trailer tanker was carrying cement and came to rest within several feet of occupied condominium units after the rear trailer flipped, dispatchers said.

"People are lucky it didn't end up in their dining room," Murray police Lt. Dee Rowland said. Emergency personnel were unable to resuscitate Niebuhr.
