Fatal Crash Near Strawberry Reservoir

Tragedy struck on Highway 40 Sunday morning. A 2006 tan Impala was traveling eastbound on Highway 40 near the UDOT sheds at mile marker 43 while a 2014 Grey Dodge pickup was eastbound in the same area. The Dodge was passing the Impala in the passing lane when the Impala left the travel lane to the left, sideswiping the pickup. “The impact forced the pickup into oncoming westbound traffic. Two members of the Intermountain Life Flight team were traveling westbound in a 2017 Subaru passenger car when they were hit head on by the pickup. The driver of the Subaru, 29-year-old Tyson Mason, died as a result of his injuries. The passenger in the vehicle, a Life Flight nurse, was seriously injured and was transported to Intermountain Medical Center in Murray. “This is a tragedy to lose a member of the Intermountain Healthcare and Life Flight family,” shares Joe Mott, IMC Administrator. “Our hearts and prayers go out to their families, friends and colleagues for this devastating loss.”
