A man died Saturday morning after falling off the roof of a moving car.
Two men were driving in Duchesne County when, for some reason, the passenger crawled out of the car, got on top of it and fell off at 2997 W. 8000 South, said Utah Department of Public Safety spokesman Joe Dougherty. The accident occurred about 5:25 a.m., just southeast of Myton.
The man who fell, who was not immediately identified, died at the scene. The driver, meanwhile, was arrested under suspicion of driving under the influence, Dougherty said.
