injury accident

A KMZU Listener has reported an accident on 35 highway at Bethany.

A highway patrol dispatcher has stated this was a fatality accident. The identity of the deceased has not been released pending notification to next of kin.

Reportedly the head on collision was between a car and tractor trailer and occurred at around 6:30 this evening.

Both north and south bound lanes were shut down for a couple of hours as emergency crews handled the scene of the crash as well as small grass fire that occurred as a result of the accident.

The dispatcher did state both lanes are now open again but there is still a lot of congestion in the area. If you are traveling on 35 and headed that way, you are advised to use caution.
