CEDAR CITY — One man was killed and another man critically injured in a rollover north of Cedar City on Sunday morning.

Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Adam Gibbs said the first call reporting the incident came in around 7 a.m. involving a single vehicle that had rolled off I-15.

Gibbs said it appears that the vehicle, a silver Toyota pickup, had been heading south on I-15 when it went off the roadway to the left, then overcorrected and went off the right, rolling multiple times. The truck ended up going through a wire fence and coming to rest some distance east of the Old Highway 91 frontage road that connects Enoch and Summit.

The passenger, described as a man in his early 40s, died at the scene. The driver, who was in his mid-60s and was reported to be the passenger's father, was extricated from the vehicle and then transported by ground ambulance to Cedar City Hospital, after which he was flown to St. George Regional Hospital, Gibbs said.
