OGDEN CANYON, Utah, June 11, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — One person is dead after a crash on State Route 39 in Ogden Canyon Friday afternoon.

“At approximately 1:21 p.m., a silver Subaru was eastbound in Ogden Canyon near mile 11,” said a news release from Utah Highway Patrol. “At the same time there was a Ford F-350 pulling a horse trailer heading westbound in the same area. The silver Subaru went into oncoming traffic in what appeared to be an attempt to pass another eastbound vehicle, and collided with the F-350 and horse trailer.”

The collision pushed the Subaru back into the eastbound lane, where it collided with the vehicle it was attempting to pass.

The driver of the Subaru suffered fatal injuries as a result of the crash. That individual has not been identified pending notification of family.

One horse from the horse trailer had to be put down on scene. All other parties suffered only minor injuries.

Ogden Canyon was closed in both directions for the investigation.

Gephardt Daily will have more on this developing story as information is made available.
