SANPETE COUNTY, Utah, Sept. 26, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — Police have identified an Orem man who died after his truck plunged from an embankment on State Route 89 causing him to be ejected.
A news release from the Utah Highway Patrol said Kenny Bagley, 32, was traveling north on SR-89 on Sept. 15 at 11:15 a.m. when his 2001 Ford F-150 went off the road to the left and down an embankment.
The truck traveled for a significant distance before going sideways. The truck began to roll and Bagley, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected and thrown about 45 feet back onto the road.
He received significant head trauma as well as other internal injuries when he hit the road. Bagley was taken to Sanpete Valley Hospital, then transferred by air to a trauma care center.
Bagley died on Sept. 17 as a result of the injuries he sustained in the crash.
Officials do not believe that drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash, and a witness stated he was behind Bagley when he went off the road, and he was going close to the posted limit.
