A 75-year-old man from Clearfield died Sunday after the car he was driving hydroplaned on Interstate 15 and was hit by a motor home.
The crash occurred on northbound I-15 near milepost 329 at about 9 a.m., a press release from the Utah Highway Patrol said, where the man, Stephen L. Stumph, was driving a silver Toyota Camry in the rain.
There was standing water on the roadway, and, according to the news release, Stumph was speeding too fast for the weather conditions and lost control of the vehicle.
His car sideswiped a Hyundai Elantra on the right, which then pushed the Camry back to the left directly into the path of a 37-foot motor home. According to the press release, the motor home struck the Camry "squarely" on the driver's door.
Stumph died at the scene, and his male passenger was transported via helicopter to the University of Utah Hospital with serious injuries, the press release states. The occupants of the motor home were transported to the hospital by ambulance with minor injuries, and no one in the Elantra was injured.
Everyone involved in the crash, caused by speed and weather conditions, was wearing a seat belt, the news release said.
