SALT LAKE CITY — One person was killed Tuesday when a vehicle slammed into the back of a semitruck.
The crash happened about 5:30 a.m. on California Avenue directly underneath I-215 near the on-ramp, said Salt Lake police detective Michael Ruff.
A four-door sedan slammed into the back of a semitrailer, he said, and ended up partially underneath the big rig.
Police say the vehicle had possibly just exited I-215 at a high rate of speed and may have hit a pole, causing the driver to lose control. Information about the deceased driver was not immediately released.
