ST. GEORGE — An early morning crash between a cement truck and a pickup left one man dead Wednesday.

The driver of the cement truck was headed west on Red Hills Parkway about 6:20 a.m. and drifted into the eastbound lane as the truck rounded a bend near 1300 East, St. George police reported.

An oncoming pickup truck driven by Bruno Loreda, 52, was hit head-on. Loreda was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger in the truck, a 37-year-old man, and the driver of the cement truck, a 53-year-old man, sustained injuries that were not life-threatening.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
