Meanwhile, a 61-year-old woman who was driving eastbound on 4800 South stopped at the stop sign at 300 West, but then entered the intersection in front of the motorcycle. The woman claimed the morning sun was in her eyes and she never saw the other vehicle, according to the press release.

The motorcycle, which was traveling around 30-35 mph, hit the passenger side of the woman’s car.

The motorcyclist suffered a broken leg and other injuries and was transported to Ogden Regional Medical Center, where he later died.

The woman, who was not injured, was cited for failure to yield the right of way and driving on a denied license.

The names of the parties involved were not immediately released because of the ongoing nature of the investigation, the sheriff’s office said.
