BRIGHAM CITY, Utah (AP) -- An Ogden man has been ordered to stand trial on a third-degree felony automobile-homicide charge.
Forty-one-year-old Kip Chesnut was bound over this week following a preliminary hearing in first District Court.
He is accused in the March 28th, 2003, crash near Willard that claimed the life of Gerald Edward Miller, 42, of Ogden.
Miller was a passenger in a sport utility vehicle driven by Chesnut that drifted from the inside lane to the outside lane, the Utah Highway Patrol.
The patrol said the driver overcorrected several times, and the S-U-V slid underneath the first trailer of a double tractor-trailer rig.
It was dragged, then rolled several times, ejecting both occupants. The patrol said they were not wearing seatbelts.
