GREEN RIVER, Emery County — A Colorado man died Friday in a single-vehicle rollover crash on I-70 about 3 miles east of Green River on Friday, Utah Highway Patrol said.

The driver has been identified as James Williams, 54, of Grand Junction.

Williams was driving a 2003 Chevy Silverado west on I-70 when for unknown reasons the truck went over the median, UHP Cpl. Michael Gordon said. The driver overcorrected and the truck rolled, leading to fatal injuries, he said.

The Department of Public Safety said the driver was not wearing a seat belt and he was ejected from the truck as a result of the rollover.

The road was temporarily closed but has since reopened, according to the Utah Department of Transportation.
