Provo, UT (October 2, 2023) – A truck accident reported in the Provo area on Monday claimed one person’s life.

At this time, the incident is being investigated.
Our condolences go out to the family of the man who died in this accident.
Fatal truck accidents are the cause of thousands of deaths in the United States each year. Although these accidents occur quite often, it is not possible to prepare for the impact that one will have on your family.
The sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one can be incredibly challenging to deal with. Quite often, families are left struggling to move forward. Families often deal with overwhelming financial burdens as a result of these fatal accidents. It is essential that families understand the legal options that are available to help.
