GRAND COUNTY -- A California man was killed in a rollover crash on Interstate 70 near Green River.

According to the Utah Highway Patrol, Matt Matsushita Jr. was driving westbound around 2:45 Sunday afternoon when his 4-Runner went off the road, skidded out of control and rolled multiple times before coming to a rest on its top.

Matsushita died at the scene.

Troopers don't know what caused Matsushita to swerve, but say it's likely he was either distracted or fell asleep. They say there was evidence of excessive speed.
