SNOWVILLE, Box Elder County — A California man was killed in a rollover Tuesday, and a child and passenger were seriously injured.

The minivan was driving west on I-84 just past Snowville about 6:15 p.m. when the van drifted partially off the left shoulder and the driver overcorrected back to the right, the Utah Highway Patrol reported. The van spun across both westbound lanes, hit a drainage area and rolled, landing on its roof.

Albert Arzaga, 54, was sitting in the middle row behind the driver and was ejected from the vehicle. Arzaga, of Chula Vista, California, died at the scene.

A man sitting in the back seat was critically injured and taken by medical helicopter to Ogden Regional Medical Center, UHP reported. A 4-year-old girl who sustained a severe head injury was taken by ambulance to Bear River Valley Hospital and transferred by medical helicopter to Primary Children's Hospital.

The male driver, two women and a child were treated at Bear River Valley Hospital and released.
