SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Jan. 2, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — A University of Utah bus driver suffered a medical condition while driving a shuttle on campus, crashed into concrete barrier and died Saturday morning.

According to University of Utah Communications Director Maria O’Mara, 72-year-old James Lamb, a part-time U. of U. employee, was driving a shuttle on campus to be serviced when he suffered an unknown medical condition.

“He was going from the area around Fort Douglas to Research Park and he crashed into a concrete barrier,” O’Mara said. “From examining the damage at the scene of the accident, it appears the medical condition happened before the accident and the crash did not cause fatal injuries.”

O’Mara said no one else was on board the shuttle bus at the time of the accident.

We will have more on this developing story when it becomes available.
