WEBER COUNTY, Utah — An Ogden Canyon highway was closed in both directions due to a fatal accident Friday afternoon.

State Route 39 was shut down between the mouth of the canyon and Pineview Dam.

According to officials, a Ford pick-up truck pulling a horse trailer was heading westbound when it collided with a Suburu that went into oncoming traffic as it appeared to be attempting to pass another vehicle.

The driver of the Suburu was killed in the crash. Passengers in the truck only suffered minor injuries, but one horse had to be put down at the scene.
