WILLARD -- A 25-year-old Brigham City man is dead after his vehicle rear-ended a semi-truck truck on I-15 near Willard in Box Elder County.
Utah Highway Patrol officials say traffic had slowed because of an accident further ahead when a Dodge Neon slammed into the back of the truck a little after 5 p.m. Tuesday.
Troopers say the driver of the Neon was killed instantly when his vehicle went up under the rear of the truck. He's been identified as Brandon P. Phillips.
UHP Cpl. Todd Johnson says it appears Phillips didn't attempt to slow down for the stopped truck.
The 38-year-old driver of the truck was not injured.
