SALT LAKE COUNTY (ABC4 News)- A 23-year-old West Jordan man is dead after running into the back of a stalled UPS semi on I-15 Wednesday night.

It happened just before 11 p.m. in the northbound lanes of I-15 at 15100 South.

Troopers say the semi stopped in the road after an air malfunction caused the tires to lock up. Officials say the driver had been there about five minutes when the collision happened.

The driver killed has been identified as Jacob A. Miller of West Jordan.

Investigators say they don’t suspect either driver was impaired.
