A person is dead after a head-on collision near the intersection of 1860 South and State Street in south Provo.
According to Sgt. Nisha King with the Provo Police Department, a driver went into the wrong lane, putting them directly “opposite” other vehicles, at 11:12 a.m. Wednesday.
“One vehicle was traveling east; one was traveling west,” King said.
The car then collided with another car head on.
Each driver, one a female and the other male, were transferred to Utah Valley Hospital, according to King. All traffic on 1860 South near the Springville border was closed for approximately two-and-a-half hours.
King said she didn’t know why one of the drivers went into the opposite lane but pointed out that a police investigation team was on the scene.
King did not disclose the name of the deceased person.
