ROOSEVELT -- A 10-year-old North Altamont boy died from the injuries he sustained in a rollover accident.

The Utah High Patrol says on Saturday afternoon Jaxon Miles was riding without his seat belt on in the front passenger seat of a Chevy pickup traveling on State Route 87 outside of Roosevelt. The driver, 21-year-old Malcolm Miles, fell asleep.

Miles awoke and over corrected, sending the truck into a spin before it flipped two-and-a-half times and landed with its roof in a small canal.

The boy was ejected from the truck. He was flown to Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City, where he died.

Malcolm Miles was treated and released from Uintah Basin Medical Center.
