He was about 8 feet into the river when troopers arrived after 4:25 p.m.

UHP Spokesman Joe Dougherty said alcohol appeared to be a factor in the crash.

According to initial reports, Sims lost control of his truck and veered off the road about 14 miles up Logan Canyon.

He was spotted by witnesses, who called for help.
