BOUNTIFUL — A motorcyclist died Monday after crashing into a stopped truck on I-15.

Robert C. Jones, 39, of Bountiful, was riding his motorcycle south in the HOV lane near 2600 South just before 10 a.m. when he crashed into the back of a Dodge Dakota, the Utah Highway Patrol said. Jones later died from his injuries.

Police didn't say whether Jones was wearing a helmet, and they were still trying to determine Monday afternoon why the truck was stopped on the freeway.

No other injuries were reported in the crash. Two southbound lanes on I-15 were closed for much of Monday morning.
