HOLLADAY, Utah, Sept. 3, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — A male driver was fatally injured in a violent crash in Holladay early Thursday morning.
Unified Police Lt. Paul Barker told Gephardt Daily the driver was headed southbound on Highland Drive about 1:50 a.m. when he drove off the road and clipped a street sign before careening into a gas station parking lot at 6070 S. Highland Drive.
The green Volkswagen came to a stop upside down in the parking lot of the Chevron just a few feet from gas pumps. Its engine was detached during the crash and smashed through the brick wall of a neighboring business.
Barker said the cause of the accident had yet to be determined although it appeared excessive speed was a factor.
The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. His name is being withheld pending notification of family members.
Gephardt Daily will update this story as more information becomes available.
