OAKLEY, Summit County — One man died early Sunday morning after he crashed his car near Oakley and was thrown from the vehicle.

The wreck happened about 1:24 a.m. on state Route 32 at the New Lane intersection, according to a press release from the Utah Department of Public Safety.

Officials say a Subaru Legacy ran off the roadway to the right and struck an embankment. It "became airborne" and struck a large power pole "before overturning and coming to rest off the roadway."

The male driver was the only person in the car. He was not wearing a seat belt, officials said, and was ejected from the car and pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver was identified Monday as 58-year-old Peter E. Schrumpf, of Oakley, according to officials.

Officials said alcohol is being investigated as a contributing factor in the crash.
