A motorcyclist died and his passenger was critically injured in a crash Thursday afternoon.
A witness called dispatchers about 3 p.m. about a man and woman, in their early 20s, in a possibly domestic dispute near 3500 S. State Street, said South Salt Lake Police Sgt. Darin Sweeten. An officer was close by — but when he arrived and got out of his vehicle to talk to the couple, they jumped on the motorcycle and took off at a high rate of speed, Sweeten said.
The two were going south on State Street but crashed into a Jeep that turned left in front of them at 3750 South, Sweeten said.
