Kenneth Brooks, 17, of Magna, was driving eastbound when he swerved to avoid hitting an animal, overcorrected and ended up rolling the van into the freeway’s median.

Beaslin, unrestrained and asleep in the cargo area of the van at the time, was ejected. He later died at Bear River Valley Hospital in Tremonton.

Brooks, who was wearing a seatbelt, was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

The accident remained under investigation, ISP said.
