SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The fire chief of a Utah city has been killed in a head-on highway collision with two trucks.
The Utah Highway Patrol says Green River Fire Chief Philip Engleman was driving on U.S. Route 6 Sunday when his car crossed over the road’s center line and struck the semitractor-trailer trucks.
Authorities say Engleman died at the scene of the accident. The truck drivers were not injured in the crash.
The highway patrol says the accident occurred shortly before 4 p.m. near Green River, a city 139 miles (224 kilometers) southeast of Provo.
Additional information about a possible cause of the accident was not immediately available.
The highway patrol says the State Bureau of Investigation and other agencies have been contacted to aid in the investigation.
This story has been corrected to show the collision was on Sunday.
