Utah bride dies in vehicle crash on the way home from her wedding

A 26-year-old Utah woman was killed on her way back from her wedding reception after a vehicle going the wrong way on a highway struck her car, according to authorities.

The accident happened around 1:15 a.m. Saturday morning near Salt Lake City, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.

Authorities said Angelica Dhondup was “traveling home from her wedding” in her Toyota Corolla when a silver Toyota pickup driving on the wrong side of the highway hit Dhondup’s car head-on. Dhondup suffered fatal injuries from the accident while a 20-year-old female passenger had non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to a hospital.

Family members told KSL-TV Dhondup was on her way home with her cousin to drop off wedding presents and was still in her wedding dress. After the crash, Dhondup’s friend Tayler Craft said Dhondup called her sister to say she was hurt and couldn’t breathe before she died.

A Toyota Corolla was hit by a truck going the wrong way.

“She can’t even go to her honeymoon. She can’t even come home to her kids,” Craft told KSL. “She just got married five hours ago.”

The driver of the pickup and a passenger were helped out of the vehicle by a passerby. Authorities said the driver stole the passerby’s truck before he was apprehended by responding officers. The passenger fled on foot but returned to the scene.

The driver of the Toyota pickup, identified as Manaure Gonzalez-Rea, 36, was arrested and taken to Salt Lake County Jail. Gonzalez-Rea is charged with a DUI, automobile homicide criminal negligence DUI, reckless driving and failure to remain at an accident involving death and theft, according to court records. Cans of beer were found at the scene of the crash.

Ex-Toyota Europe CEO van Zyl dies at age 63

Johan van Zyl, the former president and CEO of Toyota Europe, died Friday in his native South Africa. He was 63.

The cause was related to COVID-19 complications, according to people familiar with the matter.

The automaker said Saturday he would be remembered for his humor, calmness and personal empathy.

Van Zyl led Toyota’s European operations, which include Russia, Turkey, Israel and central Asian countries, from 2015 until April, when he was succeeded by sales and marketing chief Matthew Harrison.

Under van Zyl’s strategic and operational leadership, Toyota Europe delivered sustained business results, with sales passing the one-million mark in 2019 for the first time in 10 years and market share exceeding 6 percent in 2020.

Toyota was a leader in CO2 emissions with a lineup of hybrid powertrains that was expanded under van Zyl. During his tenure, the automaker expanded its production sites and added products in Russia, Poland, Turkey and France. Toyota took sole ownership of a joint venture plant with PSA Group in Kolin, Czech Republic, in January.  

Van Zyl announced in 2018 that Toyota would discontinue diesel powertrains from the automaker’s passenger car lineup, with the exception of the Land Cruiser large SUV and the Hilux pickup.

In leaving Toyota Europe, van Zyl said: “What I am most satisfied about is the very strong team we have here in Europe. With such great people across the Toyota European organization, with such talent and passion, there won’t be any disruption in the transformation we have embarked upon, and I have no doubt Toyota will do very well under Matt’s [Harrison] leadership.”

Harrison said recently that he saw no reason to sharply change course as CEO of Toyota Europe.

“I’ve worked incredibly closely with van Zyl for the last few years,” Harrison told Automotive News Europe in an interview. “So, I would like to think I have already had a lot of opportunity to offer input into our strategy, and I didn’t feel the need to scrap everything anything and rebuild. That element of my strategy was more about a seamless transition and continuity.”

New York Jets assistant coach dies following bicycle accident

New York Jets assistant coach Greg Knapp, 58, died Thursday after a bicycle accident that occurred five days earlier.

“While his family, friends and players still had so much to learn from him and desperately wished they had more time with him, God called an audible and wanted to go over the game plan directly with him. It will certainly be a masterpiece, just like Greg!” his family said in a statement on his death.

The incident happened near Knapp’s home in San Ramon, Calif., about 30 miles from Oakland. 

Knapp never regained consciousness in the five days after the crash. The driver, whose name has not been released, was not under the influence of drugs and is working with police in the investigation, ESPN reported.

Knapp was surrounded by his mother, wife, three daughters and brother when he died.

“Greg had such an inner peace about him that people always seemed to gravitate towards,” New York Jets coach Robert Saleh said in a statement. “He lived life in a loving way that helped him connect with people from all walks of life in a unique way.

“In his short time here, I believe the people in this organization had a chance to experience that connection. Greg, thank you for all that you have shared with us, you will be missed brother,” Saleh added.

Knapp joined the Jets at the beginning of the year as a passing-game specialist and has been with many teams over his coaching career that began in 1997.

“He was a tremendous football coach who achieved at the highest levels of our game, but more importantly he was a wonderful person who had the love, admiration and respect of those who were blessed to work with him,” Falcons owner Arthur Blank said in a statement. “Rest In Peace, Greg Knapp.”

Knapp was set to work with three young quarterbacks the Jets had and was going to travel to New Jersey just a few days after the incident to begin the season.

“In his short time with us, Greg had an immediate influence on those who had the pleasure of spending the smallest amount of time with him,” Jets chairman Woody Johnson’s statement reads. “His legacy is not only working with some of the brightest quarterbacks the league has ever seen, but the countless others across this world he has had an indelibly positive influence on.”

Pedestrian struck by car later dies of injuries

A Millville man has died of his injuries following an accident earlier this month in Vineland.

A 32-year-old Vineland man was driving a car west on Hance Bridge Road near Panther Road shortly after 11 p.m. on July 9 when he struck William K. Harris, 25, of Millville.

Police believe Harris was in the roadway for an unknown reason and said he was wearing non-reflective clothing. There is a minimal roadway shoulder of only a few inches width in that area, police noted in their report.

Harris was unresponsive when emergency responders arrived and was airlifted to a hospital for treatment.

He remained hospitalized until he died of his injuries on Tuesday, police said.

No charges have been filed against the driver, but the case remains under investigation.

Harris was walking home from work when he was struck, according to a manager at Eastlyn Golf Course and The Greenview Inn in Vineland, who created a GoFundMe drive to help with his medical bills.

Harris worked there and at the Double Eagle Saloon in Vineland, Dina Matias said in her fundraiser, which had collected more than $13,000 as of Friday afternoon.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to contact Vineland Police Officer Agustin Santiago at 856-691-4111, ext. 4247.

Woman dies after crash with truck near Wichita, KS: Sheriff

Update, 4:30 p.m. Thursday:

A woman has died after a delivery truck ran a stop sign and crashed into her SUV, officials said.

Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Tim Myers told The Eagle on Thursday that Linda Keller died after being hurt in a crash Monday afternoon in the northwest part of the county. She was 60 years old and from Cheney.

A sheriff’s office accident report states that Keller was eastbound on 21st Street as Ray Crook was northbound on 247th Street West. Crook’s vehicle “ran the stop sign” and struck the passenger side of Keller’s vehicle.

Keller was taken to Ascension Via Christi St. Francis hospital in critical condition. Crook was taken to the same hospital in serious condition.

Photos from the scene showed a Cintas box truck had caught fire during the wreck.

No citations have been issued and the crash remains under investigation, Myers said.

Original story:

At least two people were hurt and taken to a hospital after a crash Monday afternoon in northwest Sedgwick County.

Emergency crews were called at around 1:30 p.m. to an injury accident at 21st Street North and 247th Street West, a Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor said. One patient was reported to be in critical condition, and a second was in serious condition.

The intersection, which is northwest of Goddard, is blocked. The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the wreck.
