A North Carolina man was visiting his family in Springville for Christmas when someone struck his car, killing him.
Police report that Worth R. Rummage, 62, died in a fatal crash Sunday afternoon at 1400 N. Main Street. He had been driving west in a Honda Accord and was crossing the intersection at 2:30 p.m. when a northbound Jeep Liberty failed to stop for the red light and struck him broadside, according to a Springville police news release.
Rummage was trapped in his car, so fire and rescue responders had to extricate him before an ambulance could take him to the hospital. A helicopter was initially called to the scene, but was cancelled because of the type and extent of Rummage's injuries, according to the release.
