LOCAL REAL ESTATE MOGUL DIES IN AUTOMOBILE CRASH

Utah real estate developer James Kier was pronounced dead after his car collided with a concrete pylon on southbound I-80. Authorities believe Kier may have had a heart attack prior to swerving off the road.

Kier was the president of the Kier Company, one of the West’s largest real estate development firms. He was known as a fierce, oftentimes ruthless businessman. He once said “If you want to make friends, join a book club. It you want to make money, go into business. Only a fool confuses the two.”

Kier is survived by his son, James Kier II, and his wife, Sara.
