SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – A deadly crash on southbound I-15 in Salt Lake City forced all lanes at 1000 South to close early Friday morning.

Troopers directed southbound traffic off the freeway.

Utah Highway Patrol said for an unknown reason the driver of a yellow Honda FIT didn’t slow down and hit the back of a semi.

Barker was killed instantly.

The road opened just before 5:00 a.m. Friday morning.

We were unaware this was the case and apologize for any hardship this may have caused to those who knew the victim.
