EAGLE MOUNTAIN, Utah (AP) - A man who was flying a glider-style aircraft south of Salt Lake City has died in a crash at Cedar Valley Airport.

The victim has been identified as 60-year-old Jeff Knell of Salt Lake City.

Utah County Sheriff’s Sgt. Cole Christensen says he went down about 2:20 p.m. Sunday at the airport near Eagle Mountain.
