The driver of the car was not injured. Salt Lake City Police say they are investigating this as a possible DUI.

Earlier this week, a motorcyclist was killed in a four-vehicle crash on I-15 in Utah County. Utah Highway Patrol says multiple vehicles were at a standstill when the motorcycle drove up and clipped the right rear corner of a pickup truck.

The motorcyclist then collided with another vehicle before crashing into the rear tires of a semi-truck. Despite bystanders attempting to perform CPR, the motorcyclist died at the scene.
