Local News

WEST JORDAN (ABC4 Utah)- A 54-year-old man is dead after police say he lost control of his truck, hit a tree, and slammed into a house.

They say Thomas Lawrence was driving an older model truck on Woodgreen Road (3500 West) around 4 p.m. Monday when he veered off the road and side-swiped a stop sign. Investigators aren’t sure what caused Lawrence to lose control of the vehicle, but after hitting the stop sign they say the truck slammed into a tree and stopped after hitting a house near 7300 South Woodgeen Rd.

Lawrence was transported to the hospital but died later that night. The home that was hit suffered only minor damage.

The cause of this crash is still under investigation.
