GRAND COUNTY, Utah, Dec. 12, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Officials have identified a man killed after the vehicle in which he was traveling Wednesday slid down an embankment on Interstate 70 in Grand County.
The vehicle then rolled multiple times before coming to rest on its top.
The deceased man is Delvin W. Staley, 30, of Logan, said a news release from the Utah Highway Patrol.
“At approximately 9:10 a.m., a white Chevrolet Malibu with Utah plates with two male occupants was traveling eastbound on Interstate 70 at mile marker 223, about seven miles from the Colorado/Utah state line,” said the news release.
The vehicle ran off the roadway to the left and the driver then overcorrected, the news release said.
“The vehicle crossed both eastbound lanes of travel and ran off the road to the right.”
Staley was ejected during the incident and died at the scene. The other man was transported to a hospital in Grand Junction, Colorado, with minor injuries.
Speed and alcohol are suspected to be factors in this crash, the news release said.
