TAYLORSVILLE, Utah — A motorcyclist died after crashing into a parked car in Taylorsville early Friday morning, according to police. The man was not wearing a helmet and was pronounced dead on the scene.
The Unified Police Department responded to a traffic alert around 1:50 a.m. after reports that a motorcycle collided with a parked car on 3200 West. According to Lt. Paul Barker, the crash was impactful enough to push the car down the street.
