SALT LAKE CITY, Utah Aug. 17, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — A motorcyclist was killed near Salt Lake City International Airport late Sunday afternoon.
The incident occurred in the area of 2100 N. 3150 West, which is north of the airport, at approximately 5:30 p.m., Salt Lake City Police Department Sgt. Keith Horrocks told Gephardt Daily.
The man and his friend were both riding motorcycles on a “long stretch of road” on 2100 North, Horrocks said, and the friend was filming the man as he rode.
