NORTH SALT LAKE, Utah — One man is dead after a motorcycle and pickup truck collided in North Salt Lake Sunday morning.

The accident occurred at about 7:30 a.m. on Center Street at U.S. Highway 89. A North Salt Lake man driving a pickup truck was traveling east on Center Street and a Bountiful man riding a motorcycle was going north on U.S. 89 when the two crashed into each other, according to North Salt Lake police.

A medical helicopter was called out but the motorcyclist ended up dying at the scene. Police say the victim was not wearing a helmet.

The driver of the pickup was checked out on scene by medics but was uninjured, according to police.

The accident caused the road to close in both directions for few hours but has since reopened.

Police are still investigating the cause of the crash. More information will be provided as it becomes available.
