WEBER COUNTY, Utah — A driver died Friday after a piece of debris from an oncoming vehicle on I-15 flew through their windshield.

Shortly after 3 p.m., the victim was driving a Hyundai passenger car north on I-15 at about mile 339, near Riverdale. A piece of debris, which the Utah Highway Patrol believes was a brake assembly from a southbound vehicle, flew over the freeway median, went through the Hyundai's windshield, and hit the driver.

The driver, who was later identified as Brady Fuhriman, 30, of Millville, suffered fatal injuries. Others were in the car with the driver, but none of them were injured.
