ECHO, Summit County — A truck driver was killed Thursday night in a rollover near Echo Reservoir.

The truck was pulling a flatbed trailer headed west on I-80 when the driver took the ramp onto I-84, the Utah Highway Patrol reported. It appears the driver went into the curve too fast and rolled off the left shoulder of the road about 8:30 p.m.

The driver, who was wearing a seatbelt, was killed in the crash, according to UHP. The victim's name was not released Thursday.

The driver was alone in the truck, and no other vehicles were involved in the accident.
