The Utah Highway Patrol has cited a man who came forward to take responsibility for a mattress that fell off his vehicle and later caused a fatal motorcycle accident.

Killed when his motorcycle struck the mattress, which had fallen into the southbound lanes, was Royce W. Munns, 46, of Brigham City. Munns was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.

The mattress owner was cited with failure to secure a load, but no other charges are anticipated, Johnson said.
