Reports show that the accident took place at about 8:50 a.m. at the intersection of 1300 South and 700 East when an SUV heading northbound on 700 East tried to make a lefthand turn onto 1300 South and crashed into a motorcycle driving southbound on 700 East.

Witnesses to the accident attempted CPR on the biker, along with emergency responders when they arrived. The man was, however, pronounced dead at the scene.

Police are investigating and cannot offer more information.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.

Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Salt Lake City

Deadly accidents are a danger faced by motorcycle riders more so than the drivers or passengers of any other type of vehicle. While only 3% of vehicles registered in the state of Utah are motorcycles, the Utah Department of Public Safety reports that, in 2017, the state witnesses a total of 273 crash fatalities. Of these, 39, slightly more than 14%, were motorcycle riders. 

When victims are injured in accidents caused by the negligence of other drivers, it is crucial that they seek legal guidance from a skilled and knowledgeable motorcycle accident attorney in Salt Lake City as soon as possible. When victims are harmed in collisions, through no fault of their own, they are often able to obtain compensation from wrongdoers to alleviate the financial costs they face for medical treatment, lost wages, property repairs, and a variety of other economic and non-economic damages.
