SALINA, Sevier County — A Colorado man was killed in a rollover crash on I-70 Friday morning.
Brennan R. Ching, 20, was killed about 6:30 a.m. when the pickup truck he was riding in veered off the left side of the road and rolled when the driver overcorrected to the right. Ching, of Fort Collins, was pronounced dead at the scene, Utah Department of Public Safety spokesman Joe Dougherty reported.
The driver, 21-year-old Jesus T. Paredes, of Fallbrook, California, sustained leg injuries and was taken to Sevier Medical Center in Richfield.
One lane of I-70 was shut down for about two hours as officials responded to the crash.
The passenger side of the truck sustained the most damage, Dougherty said. Both men were wearing seat belts.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
