ST. GEORGE — A man driving at high speeds rolled his truck on River Road Monday night, thereby suffering severe injuries, police said.

At about 9:45 p.m., a 37-year-old man driving northbound in front of the Fountain Heights Apartments at 3424 S. River Rd. rolled his 2000 Toyota Tundra after reaching a high rate of speed, St. George Police Officer Derek Lewis said. The man survived the rollover, but he suffered extensive injuries to his lower extremities.

The driver lost control of the truck on the road’s dirt shoulder, Lewis said. He fishtailed and lost control, which caused the truck to roll. He was taken to the hospital by ambulance.

This report is based on preliminary information provided by the authorities and may not contain the full scope of findings.

    Even if the man was being foolish, I feel bad for him. I have a tacoma and I know how easy it could roll.
