Stephen Keddington, 33, of Murray, was traveling west on 9000 South about 8 a.m. when he crossed into oncoming traffic for an unknown reason near 900 East and hit a Mazda 6 head-on, said Sandy Police Sgt. Jason Nielsen.

Keddington was taken to a local hospital where he later died. 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.
