SANDY — One person was killed in a head-on crash in Sandy on Wednesday.

About 8 a.m., a Honda Civic traveling west on 9000 South crossed into oncoming traffic for an unknown reason near 900 East and hit a Mazda 6 head-on, said Sandy Police Sgt. Jason Nielsen.

A 33-year-old man driving the Honda was taken to a local hospital where he later died, Nielsen said. A 36-year-old man driving the Mazda suffered only minor injuries, he said.

Why the Honda crossed into oncoming traffic was still being investigated. Because the crash involved a fatality, Nielsen said the Unified Police Department's Major Accident Team will take over the investigation.

The road at the time was wet but not icy or snow-covered, he said. The name of the man killed was not immediately released.
