LITTLE COTTONWOOD CANYON, Utah, Oct. 17, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — A fatal crash Sunday evening has closed state Route 210 in Little Cottonwood Canyon.

A male driver was transported to the hospital in critical condition, and the female passenger in the vehicle died on scene, Unified Police Sgt. Melody Cutler told Gephardt Daily.
