One person is dead after a crash involving a Volkswagen and a double tanker truck Saturday night.

Utah Highway Patrol Troopers responded to the crash near milepost 46 on SR-40 around 8:15 p.m.

The tanker was reportedly traveling eastbound, when a westbound Volkswagen crossed the center line into the eastbound lane where it made contact with the empty tractor trailer.

The driver of the Volkswagen sustained fatal injuries, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

SR-40 was temporarily closed for the investigation, but reopened a few hours later.

Alcohol impairment is being investigated as a contributing factor.
