A motorcyclist died Monday evening in Box Elder County when his motorcycle hit a mattress that was left on the freeway. The accident occurred Monday night at 10:43 pm on I-15, where a mix of darkness, the speed of I-15 and notably a mattress created a catastrophic event in which a life was lost. A helicopter was dispatched to the scene of the accident, but the biker was pronounced dead before the arrival of the chopper. The deceased has been identified by Utah Highway Patrol (UHP) as Royce Munns (46) of Brigham City. Mr. Munns was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
UHP is looking for the person who left the mattress on I-15. They ask anyone who saw someone lose a mattress last night on I-15 to contact them. The person faces charges, at least charges of not securing their goods properly.
We express our condolences to Mr. Munn’s family. Any death is difficult, but especially when life is taken through a means that could have been prevented. We remind all drivers to secure their goods, and take the necessary measures to ensure that if they lose their goods, they are able to clear them from the road.
