Early Tuesday morning, two semi trucks collided on Highway 6 at milepost 279 between Price and Green River.
According to authorities, the accident occurred at 3:55 a.m. when a westbound semi tractor trailer crossed the center line of the highway and struck an eastbound semi tractor trailer in a near head on collision. The Utah Department of Public Safety reported that the westbound driver was killed in the crash. The eastbound driver sustained non-life-threatening injuries and the co-driver was uninjured.
The highway has been closed in both directions as a result of one of the vehicles involved coming to a rest in the travel lane.
