TOOELE COUNTY, Utah – A man suffered fatal injuries in a head-on collision between a motorcycle and a dump truck Friday morning on SR-112 in Tooele County.

The crash occurred at about 9:25 a.m. near mile marker 6 on SR-112.

Sgt. Scott Schovaers, Tooele City Police Department, said the crash is still under investigation but it appears the motorcyclist moved out of the westbound lane and into oncoming lanes.

“It’s looking like the rider of the motorcycle veered into the lane of the dump truck,” he said.

The motorcyclist suffered fatal injuries and has so far only been identified as an adult male. There were no other injuries in connection with the crash.
