PROVO, Utah — A man is dead after a car crash near the Provo Center Street exit on southbound Interstate 15.

Sgt. Nick Street with Utah Highway Patrol told FOX 13 the crash occurred early Thursday afternoon.

According to UHP, a silver Toyota Forerunner traveling southbound on I-15 hydroplaned after traveling too fast in wet and rainy conditions.

The car then drifted to the left, through the emergency lane and struck the concrete barrier, rolling several times before coming to a stop in the left emergency lane facing northbound.

The driver of the vehicle, a 48-year-old man, suffered fatal injuries to his head. The passenger of the vehicle, a 13-year-old male, sustained minor injuries.
