CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) -- The Iron County Sheriff's Office is investigating the death of a man whose body was found in a truck on a dirt road.

The name of the 65-year-old man whose body was found Christmas night was not released because his family had not been notified.

Iron County Sheriff's Lt. Michael Crouch said it has not been determined how the man died.

Crouch said the sheriff's office was called just after 10 p.m. Thursday and told that a body had been found. According to the police report, a man was driving on a dirt road through Hamblin Valley, 17 miles off of Highway 56. He came across a truck that was stuck in the mud with the lights on and the engine running.

There were blizzard conditions where the body was found, Crouch said.
