At approximately 3:15 a.m., St. George Police officers responded to the east side of Foremaster Drive on a reported truck that had rolled, the Police Department said in a statement issued Tuesday.

“A witness observed a white pick-up truck pass another vehicle on a double yellow line,” the statement said. “The pick-up truck lost control and ran off the road where it appeared to roll end-over-end and eventually land right-side up on its wheels.”

The truck then began rolling backwards down the hill approximately another 100 feet.

The 25-year-old man driving the truck was ejected from the truck as it rolled, the police statement said. A 21-year-old male passenger was pinned in the rear passenger seat of the truck where he had to be extricated by emergency responders.

Both the driver and passenger were transported via ambulance to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George with minor injuries that were not life-threatening.

“It is suspected that alcohol was a factor in this accident,” the police statement said, “and the driver was arrested for DUI.”

This report is based on preliminary information provided by the authorities and may not contain the full scope of findings. Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.
