Looking at FlightAware, I suspect the aircraft involved was N1959X, which departed from KBMC not long before this incident, and is listed as "landing" there shortly thereafter.  This coincides with the rough shapes of the obscured tail number on the aircraft photos released by Utah Highway Patrol.  Worth noting that the exit listed by UHP in their tweet (#365 on I-15) is just off the approach end of runway 35 at KBMC.  EDIT: I'm going to retract my statement about the suspected tail number of the aircraft involved.  Looking at the flight data for the aircraft I originally called out, I don't think my assumption about who was involved was accurate (nor is the assumption made by the Fox 13, where I sourced that assumption originally).  I won't speculate further without more data on this point.

KBMC is an untowered aiport, and there aren't any feeds for it that I can find here at LiveATC.  I listened to the KSLC feed that appears to have that TRACON, but heard nothing, and KOGD (which is closer) didn't have anything either, but it doesn't list anything but its own Tower and Ground frequencies anyway.
