CEDAR CITY — A Cedar City man died early Monday in a rollover crash.
About 6:22 a.m., a sheriff's deputy arrived at the scene of the crash in the area of 1900 North and 2300 West. When the deputy approached the vehicle, the man was trying to get out of the vehicle but lost consciousness, Cedar City police said in a statement.
The deputy and other officers who arrived at the crash attempted lifesaving measures, but the driver died of his injuries on scene.
The man was described as 66 years old, but his name has not yet been released while police notify family.
"The initial investigation has revealed that the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed and was unable to negotiate a sharp turn, which caused the vehicle to overcorrect and roll," police said.
