HEBER CITY, Utah (AP) - Authorities say a paramedic is dead after a three-vehicle crash near Strawberry Reservoir in Heber City.

The Utah Highway Patrol says the fatal collision occurred about 9:45 a.m. Sunday on U.S. 40.

A passenger car was trying to pass a pickup truck when it sideswiped the truck.

The impact reportedly forced the pickup truck into oncoming traffic and it then hit a passenger car head-on.

Intermountain Medical Center officials say 29-year-old Intermountain Life Flight paramedic Tyson Mason was driving the car and was killed.

They say a Life Flight nurse was transported to Intermountain Medical Center in Murray in serious condition.

The two were returning to Salt Lake City from Uintah Basin Medical Center in Roosevelt, where they had completed a shift at the Life Flight base at that hospital.
