Emery County Fatal Crash

Tuesday March 21, 2023

On Monday, March 20, 2023, at approximately 2:13 pm, a 2007 Ford F-150 was traveling eastbound on US-6 near milepost 288 in Emery County.   Conditions at this location were wet and stormy.  As the Ford came across a railroad overpass, the roads changed from wet to sleet covered.  The pickup driver lost control, and the vehicle went off the right side of the roadway, down an embankment, and rolled.  One passenger was ejected during the rollover.  The remaining occupants remained in the vehicle.  The ejected 6-year-old male passenger was transported by an ambulance, then airlifted to an area hospital. This passenger died later as a result of his injuries.  An investigation is still ongoing to determine occupant restraint usage.  The driver and two other passengers were transported by ambulance with minor to moderate injuries.
