Utah’s AFL-CIO President Dies in Missoula After Crash

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — State labor officials say the president of Utah’s AFL-CIO labor organization has died a day after a Montana motorcycle accident.

The organization says 61-year-old Jim Judd was declared dead about 10 a.m. Friday after his organs were taken for donation. He’d been hospitalized at St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula, Montana.

Montana Highway Patrol troopers say Judd crashed Thursday morning on Interstate 15 south of Dillon, Mont.

Trooper Mitch Voss says Judd wasn’t wearing a helmet when the motorcycle rolled.

Utah AFL-CIO vice president Dale Cox says Judd was participating in the International Association of Fire Fighters motorcycle rally in Butte.

Judd was vice-chair of Utah’s State Democratic Party and a retired Ogden firefighter.

Democratic Party officials called him an inspiring leader who strived to make Utah better for working families.
