Two Truckers Tragically Killed in Head-On Collision

Grand County, UT — Two Utah truckers were tragically killed in an early-morning crash involving semi-trucks in Grand County on Monday.

According to the Utah Department of Public Safety (UDPS), the fatal accident occurred around 4:35 a.m. on SR-191 near mile marker 154.




 

Bertram Glenn Frink, 54, of Salt Lake City, UT, was traveling northbound on SR-191 in an International semi-truck when, for unknown reasons, drifted left and crossed the center lane into southbound traffic.

A southbound Kenworth, operated by 54-year-old Clark Blaine Hatch, of Koosharem, UT, was unable to avoid striking the International in a head-on collision.

Frink was killed on impact, according to UDPS.

First responders attempted to treat Hatch at the scene, but he tragically passed away before a medical helicopter could reach him.




 

It is unclear if Frink suffered a medical episode that lead to the crash.

In his obituary, Frink’s family stated he “loved driving his semi-truck.”

Celebrations of life for both men will be held early this week.

The accident remains under investigation by Utah officials.
