A Layton man was killed in a rollover Friday morning in Arizona.

Zeferino Ibarra, 28, was driving his 2004 Nissan sedan about 16 miles south of the Utah border on Interstate 15 at 7:30 a.m. when he lost control on a curve, according to Arizona Department of Public Safety officer Carrick Cook.

Ibarra was driving too fast on the winding road, overcorrected, hit a barrier and rolled, Cook said.

Ibarra was ejected from the car and died at the scene.

"The fact that he wasn't wearing a seat belt led to the fatality," Cook said.
