Local Tie to Fiery Crash

The man who died in a fiery crash on Interstate 80 over the weekend was married to a former resident of Logan. The Utah Highway Patrol identified the victim as 32 year-old Mark Nielsen of Magna. Nielsen was killed Saturday after the SUV he was driving crossed the median and collided head-on with a semi trailer near the Salt Lake County-Tooele County line. A fire started, engulfing the SUV and part of the semi trailer. Nielsen’s wife is the former Jae Lynne Johnson, daughter of Lynn and Pat Johnson of Logan. Troopers think Nielsen’s vehicle was cut off by a pickup truck that did not stop at the scene.
