ENTERPRISE, Washington County — One man is dead after he was ejected from a truck on state Route 18 on Saturday evening, according to Utah Highway Patrol.

On Monday, the UHP identified the victim as 23-year-old Coy L. Strong of Enterprise.

Cpl. Quincy Breuer with the UHP said Strong was traveling near mile marker 40.5 in a pickup truck, headed north, just before midnight.

The truck veered slightly to the right, and the driver noticed and overcorrected to the left, sending him across the southbound lanes and off the road completely.

Breuer said the truck rolled over after it left, and ejected the driver from the driver’s seat, killing him. The driver was the only occupant of the vehicle.

The UHP said speed and possibly DUI are being investigated as possible causes for the crash.
