One man is dead after crashing his dump truck into a barrier Monday morning near Orem. The man was driving on I-15 northbound, when the truck blew a tire and eventually slammed into a barrier. The resulting crash shut down the entire freeway, as emergency crews tried to save the man. Sadly he died at the scene before he could be taken to a hospital. The man's name has not yet been released, and the accident remains under investigation.
The impact of the collision caused the bed of the truck to detach from the vehicle itself, and land in the road. Debris from the crash also landed in one southbound lane, striking a vehicle traveling in the other direction, however the driver of that vehicle was uninjured.
