BRIGHAM CITY, Utah, Dec. 20, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — Officials have identified a man killed after the vehicle he was driving plowed through a yard in Brigham City, went airborne, and landed upside down on top of another car in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Brigham City Police Lt. Tony Ferderber told Gephardt Daily the deceased man is Terry Kirstine, 49, from Riverton.
The incident occurred in the area of 892 N. Highland Blvd. at approximately 12:10 a.m., Ferderber previously told Gephardt Daily.
“He was heading eastbound on 900 North. It appears he was at a high rate of speed, and alcohol probably played a factor as well,” Ferderber said. “He didn’t navigate the turn, where the road makes a right-hand turn, to go to Highland Boulevard.”
The man ended up driving into a yard and hit some large landscape boulders, Ferderber said.
“The occupants inside the home heard a loud crash and felt the house shake as the vehicle struck the car port area; nobody in the home was injured,” said a Facebook post from Brigham City Fire Department. “The victim’s vehicle landed upside down on top of the family’s newest car parked in the driveway. It took crews approximately an hour to stabilize the vehicle and extricate the victim from the wreckage.”
Kirstine, who was the only occupant, was pronounced deceased on scene.
