OGDEN, Utah - One man was killed and another seriously injured when a panel truck turned in front of a group of motorcycle riders in Ogden.

Lt. Nate Hutchinson with the Weber County Sheriff's Office said officers were called at about 2:45 p.m. Saturday to a report of a motorcycle accident.

Hutchinson said the group of riders was traveling eastbound in the 800 west block of 21st street when the driver of a panel-type truck pulled in front of them.

Their names haven't been released, but Lt.Hutchinson says the deceased is a 49 year old male from West Valley City.
