A metal ramp that reportedly fell from a pickup truck was the likely cause of a series of crashes on Interstate 15 on Thursday afternoon in Davis County that killed a teenage girl and seriously injured two people.
The Utah Highway Patrol reported Friday that the ramp fell from the vehicle of Paul Dannelly, 56, of South Jordan. Police identified Dannelly after a witness saw the ramp fall from a vehicle and passed the licence plate number on to investigators. Dannelly came to the UHP offices Friday and reportedly was "very remorseful" about the incident and did not know debris had fallen from his vehicle.
The victim was identified as Claire Kenyon, 16, of Layton. Kenyon's father, Tom Kenyon, said he heard that Dannelly had been "forthright" and "gentlemanly" about the incident.
