CEDAR CITY — One Cedar City man is dead after he overcorrected his pickup truck when it drifted off Interstate 15 near Kanarraville early Saturday morning.
Daniel A Jones, 29, was traveling north near milepost 47 at around 6 a.m. when his vehicle drifted off the road to the left for an unknown reason, Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Scott Mackelprang said.
Jones overcorrected his red Chevrolet Avalanche to the right causing the pickup to roll approximately three times, ejecting him from the truck.
As medical staff prepared to transport Jones to the hospital via medical helicopter, he passed away at the scene.
Investigators do not believe Jones was wearing a seat belt.
Authorities are still investigating the possibility of impairment as a contributing factor in the crash, Mackelprang said.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement and may not contain the full scope of findings.
