PERRY, Utah (AP) -- Authorities in Utah say an Idaho man was killed when an SUV rear-ended his car.

KSL-TV in Salt Lake City reports that investigators on Saturday identified 43-year-old Jesse McKenney, of Victor, as the driver who was killed.

According to the Utah Highway Patrol, McKenney was traveling on I-15 on Friday afternoon near Perry when he slowed down for traffic.

The UHP says a woman driving a Ford Expedition didn't notice McKenney had slowed, and crashed into his car. The impact pushed McKenney's Ford Focus into the median. The Expedition then crashed into another car. McKenney later died at a hospital in Ogden.

The woman and her three children were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The third driver was not hurt in the crash.

Authorities have not said whether anyone will be charged.
