Utah police trying to identify man killed after crashing stolen truck
A Sandy man died when he rolled and crashed a stolen pickup truck while trying to elude the Utah Highway Patrol and Duchesne County sheriff's deputies.
The pursuit began about 5 a.m. when a trooper spotted the vehicle, a 1990 Chevrolet pickup reported stolen overnight from the town of Duchesne, speeding north near 23000 West and 1800 South, about 15 miles northwest of Duchesne, said UHP Cpl. Todd Johnson.
The driver, 19-year-old Isaac Miller, lost control, went off the road and rolled. Miller, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected and died at the scene.
Investigator believe alcohol and marijuana were factors in the crash, Johnson said.
