MILLARD COUNTY, Utah, July 20, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — A 62-year-old man was killed Friday in a two-vehicle crash on State Route 6 in Millard County.

According to a UHP news release, the man was driving a blue Dodge pickup truck north on State Route 257. As he approached the intersection with SR-6 he crashed the stop sign and drove into the intersection at full speed.

Another Dodge pickup, this one pulling a trailer loaded with horses, was westbound on SR-6.
