An 85-year-old Provo man died Tuesday when his vehicle rolled on Interstate 15 about 20 miles south of Fillmore, the Utah Highway Patrol reported Wednesday.

Glen Gottfredson was northbound at about 12:30 p.m. when his vehicle drifted partially into the median, then came back onto the roadway before he over-corrected and ended back in the median, according to the UHP.

In the median, the vehicle overturned, rolled and the victim — who was not wearing a seat belt — was ejected. Gottfredson and his vehicle came to rest near the southbound lanes.

He was transported to the Fillmore Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
