1 Man Killed In Crash East Of Green River
GREEN RIVER, Utah — An elderly man was killed after a crash on eastbound Interstate 70 eight miles east of Green River, according to Utah Highway Patrol officials.
Police said the 1999 Lincoln Town Car left the right shoulder Monday afternoon before crossing both lanes and crashing in the unpaved median between eastbound and westbound lanes of I-70.
The car came to rest on its roof and troopers said the rollover caused the roof to collapse on the driver, who was properly restrained.
Officials said the man’s seat belt was cut and CPR was administered.
Medical personnel arrived at 1:40 p.m. and indicated the man had died, according to police.
Utah Highway Patrol officials later identified the man as 83-year-old Douglas Hughes of Fountain Valley, California.
No cause was given for the crash.
On Sunday, two people from California died in a crash on westbound I-70, about 15 miles away from the location of Monday’s crash.
