A Salt Lake man was killed Tuesday in a two-car accident on Beck Street in Salt Lake City.
Killed in the accident was:Merrill Eschler, 52, of 218 W. 400 North, Apt. 10.
Salt Lake police said Eschler was a passenger in a vehicle driven by his wife, Deloria Eschler, 47. She was northbound on Beck Street at 1180 North when she stopped the vehicle and made a right turn across Victory Road. She was apparently crossing in order to deliver a newspaper to a business there, a police report stated.
She collided with another northbound vehicle that was driven by Todd Grossenbach, 24, of Salt Lake City. Grossenbach braked but slid further than usual because of the snow, the report said.
Merrill Eschler was pronounced dead at a local hospital. Deloria Eschler, Grossenbach and his wife, Kim Grossenbach, also 24, were treated for injuries and later released.
