(KSL News) -- An alleged drunk driver caused a deadly wreck on state road 73 this morning, west of Lehi.

The man was driving his truck on the wrong side of the road.

One car managed to swerve and get out of the way; but sheriff's deputies say the driver of a silver car, Larry Beach, didn't have time to react and hit the truck head on. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The truck's driver, Trenton Jones, was taken to the hospital, then arrested for driving under the influence.
