CEDAR CITY — The driver of a dump truck was killed Thursday morning in a rollover crash in Beaver Canyon.

Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Nick Street said the incident happened shortly after 9 a.m. on state Route 153, near milepost 17.

The dump truck was heading down the canyon westbound toward the city of Beaver when it swerved left on a turn and struck a guardrail, Street said.

"The truck went through the guardrail and rolled down a steep embankment," he said.

The male driver, who was the only occupant of the truck, was thrown from the vehicle and died on scene, Street said.
