Semitruck driver dies after crash into Garden City business

Garden City, UT - A semitruck had gone through the intersection and careened into Pugstones Sporting, 6 S. Bear Lake Blvd.

Utah Highway Patrol troopers say the semitruck, driven by Ahmed M. Abdelgader, 31, of Omaha, Nebraska, was driving erratically as it entered an intersection with state Route 30 in Garden City about 6:30 p.m., Wednesday. It ran a stop sign as it attempted to turn onto SR-30, before it rolled and jackknifed into a nearby sporting goods store, officials added.

Abdelgader died at a hospital overnight, Utah Highway Patrol officials said Thursday. A second man inside the truck remained in critical condition at McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden. His name and age weren't released, but UHP Sgt. Cade Brenchley said the man was from Indiana.
