One killed in single-vehicle rollover on US Highway 6
UTAH COUNTY, Utah — One person was killed after being ejected from a vehicle on U.S. Highway 6 in eastern Utah County.
Officials with the Utah Highway Patrol said a man was driving a red Ford Escort when he used the emergency lane to pass westbound two vehicles.
Troopers said the Escort then lost control and spun out, crossing two lanes of westbound traffic, a center lane and two eastbound lanes before rolling into the right-of-way fence.
The driver was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the Escort. He was pronounced dead on scene by emergency crews.
No other vehicles were involved in the crash and authorities had not released the man’s identity.
