SANDY, Utah — A woman was killed on I-15 in Sandy early Wednesday morning after the motorcycle she was on crashed and a semi truck ran over her.
It happened around 3:30 a.m. on northbound I-15 around 8700 South.
“Witnesses indicated the bike began to fishtail and swerve,” said UHP Lt. Wade Breuer. “The bike goes down, ejects both the rider and the driver and a semi comes along and ends up striking and killing the passenger of this motorcycle.”
The driver of that motorcycle suffered only minor injuries and the semi truck driver was not hurt.
The crash closed northbound I-15 from 10600 South to 7200 south, as well as both the onramp and offramp at 9000 South. Morning commuters were asked to take the I-215 exit to get around the traffic.
UHP later identified the victim as 30-year-old Jordan Stern of Salt Lake City.
