HEBER, Utah — One person is dead after two-car crash in Heber Tuesday evening.

The accident occurred at about 5:20 p.m. According to Utah Highway Patrol, a motorist traveling in a red Dodge Ram pickup was traveling east on State Route 40 approaching the intersection at East Airport Road.

According to UHP, a motorist driving a white Chevy Tahoe was coming off of East Airport road and began to make a left turn onto SR-40.
