A late-night traffic accident in Salt Lake City claimed the life of an 18-year-old man.

Two vehicles hit head-on just before midnight Monday near 5600 West and 1400 South, said Salt Lake City Police detective Dwayne Baird.

One driver received only minor injuries and was not taken to the hospital, Baird said. The other had to be extricated from his vehicle and was pronounced dead a short time later.

The man's name was not released Tuesday pending notification of family members. The cause of the accident is under investigation.
