(KSL News)A man died this afternoon, when his R-V plummeted into Pineview Reservoir in Weber County.
Sheriff's deputies say his vehicle failed to turn a corner on State Road 39, left the road and headed directly straight for the water.
Witnesses say the R-V skidded over several hundred feet of gravel and dirt, flew over an embankment, landed in the lake and sank.
He was the only person in the R-V.
Divers retrieved the R-V, with the driver still inside.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators aren't sure why the R-V left the road or how the man died.
They say, it appears, he never applied his brakes.
