LINDON, Utah — A wrong way driver caused a fatal crash on I-15 late Tuesday night according to the Utah Dept. of Public Safety.

At 11:35 p.m., Utah Highway Patrol dispatchers received reports of a vehicle traveling northbound in the southbound lanes of I-15 at mile marker 273 in Lindon.

Soon after, there was a collision between that vehicle and a southbound vehicle.

The driver of one of the vehicles, a 28-year-old male, was unrestrained and likely killed on impact.

The driver of the other vehicle, a 22-year-old female, was transported to a hospital in serious condition.

Evidence and witness interviews have given troopers and the state bureau of investigation a pretty good idea as to which of the two vehicles involved may have been going the wrong way, according to the DPS news release.

Until investigators have 100 percent certainty, those details will not be released.

Names of the victims have not been released.
