RIVERDALE, Utah, Dec. 3, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Utah Highway Patrol officials have identified a man killed in a crash involving two semi-trucks on Interstate 15 last week.

The deceased is Mahmoud Sarebannejad, 36, of Laguna Niguel, California, UHP said Tuesday.

The incident occurred Nov. 25 on I-15 northbound at mile marker 339 in the Riverdale area, said a tweet from UHP.

“One semi was parked on the right shoulder of I-15 and the driver was out at the rear of his semi’s trailer readjusting his load,” said a follow-up tweet from UHP. “A second semi swerved right from the lane next to the parked semi to avoid a crash and impacted the driver and the rear of the parked semi.”
