PAROWAN — A San Jose, Calif., man died Friday after his pickup truck rolled on I-15 about 20 miles north of Parowan.

Guillermo Granados, 55, was in his truck traveling south on the interstate at 11:03 a.m., when the left rear tire tread separated, said Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Ted Tingey. The truck went out of control and into the median of the freeway, where it rolled.

Although Granados was wearing a seat belt, the force of the impact partially ejected him from the truck, Tingey said.

One lane of I-15 was closed for 30 minutes during the investigation of the accident.
