SALT LAKE CITY — A man who was injured in a crash involving a motorcycle and car Tuesday afternoon has died Thursday, and police say the driver of the other vehicle faces charges that include DUI and evidence tampering.

The crash occurred around 12:25 p.m. Tuesday at 2100 South and 600 West when a Harley Davidson motorcycle westbound on 2100 South collided with a four-door passenger car that turned left in front of the motorcycle.

According to the Utah Highway Patrol, the motorcyclist, later identified as 69-year-old Sigfried Meyer of Salt Lake City, was not wearing a helmet and suffered critical injuries in the crash. Thursday night, authorities confirmed he had died due to those injuries.

Police stated the driver of the other car, “immediately exited the vehicle and began trying to destroy marijuana and paraphernalia.”

That driver, identified as 21-year-old Daniel Levert of Salt Lake City, was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail Tuesday. Police state he faces charges that include DUI with a serious bodily injury, possession of a controlled substance and evidence tampering. Further charges may be possible now that Meyer has died.

    Lock him up and throw away the key!! Tired of people being irresponsible drivers and not looking out for motorcyclists…especially if they are under the influence. Make an example out of him.
