ROOSEVELT -- Police in Roosevelt are trying to find what caused a man to lose control of his car just before it struck and killed a utility worker.

The driver was headed south on State Street in Roosevelt when his car crossed the center line near 1800 South. The sedan then left the road, hit a fence and slammed into a worker who was marking telephone wiring boxes.

That worker was taken to the hospital where he died.

Roosevelt's chief of police told the Deseret News, so far, it doesn't appear drugs or alcohol were factors.

Investigators are looking into whether or not the driver's history of diabetes and seizures played a role.
