DELTA, Utah – One person is dead after a vehicle traveling on state Route 257 crashed Friday morning, authorities said.
The rollover happened at approximately 4:20 a.m. near mile post 53, which is about 17 miles south of Delta.
According to the Utah Highway Patrol, the road in the area makes a gradual turn to the left. The driver of a white Ford F250 apparently failed to negotiate the turn and went off the right side of the road.
The driver then overcorrected, and the truck rolled several times. The driver was ejected and died at the scene.
Authorities are investigating whether speed and impairment were contributing factors in the crash.
The driver’s identity has not been released.
