A man died Friday when his pickup truck rolled and ejected him on the Mountain View Corridor in Riverton.

Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal said 41-year-old David Chad Mortensen of Provo was driving his white Ford F-150 north on the highway about 9 a.m. when he swerved off the side of the road.

He apparently over-corrected then rolled into the median near 13400 South.

The cause of the accident was under investigation, but it did not appear Mortensen was wearing a seat belt, Hoyal said.
