TOOELE COUNTY, Utah – The Utah Highway Patrol has identified the person killed Wednesday in a head-on crash on State Route 36 in Tooele County as 38-year-old Brian J. Jones, of Eureka, Utah.

UHP Sgt. Todd Royce said the wreck occurred on SR-36 at mile post 7,  at the Tooele-Juab County border just before 7 p.m.

The semi came to a stop, partially blocking the southbound lane.

Jones was trapped in the Civic and emergency crews had to cut him out of the car.

He died from injuries in the wreck.
