Lindon man dies in Payson crash

A Lindon man died in a collision in Payson Sunday.

Killed was:Lynn L. Thornton, 64, Lindon.

Thornton and his wife, Marie, were driving east on 9600 South in Payson at 11:50 a.m. and had stopped at the intersection of U-141.

When Thorton proceeded ahead, he apparently did not see the southbound pickup truck driven by Warren Ahlin, 62, Santaquin, approaching, said Utah Highway Patrol trooper Dennis Bang.

Ahlin took evasive action and tried to stop, but the vehicles collided, sending Ahlin's car through a fence and knocking down a satellite dish, Bang said.

The driver's door where Thornton was sitting took a direct hit.

Thornton's wife and two passengers in the Ahlin car were treated and later released from Mountain View Hospital.
