TOOELE, Utah — A vehicle rolled and crashed on eastbound I-80, seven miles east of Wendover early Sunday morning, ejecting two passengers.

The car swerved, over-corrected, and then rolled according to Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Andrew Battenfield.

 

Two people in the car were ejected by the force of the crash, Battenfield said. The reason the car swerved is not yet known.

A Life Flight helicopter was called to the scene to transport one of the accident victims to a hospital, but the other victim died at the scene of the crash.

Battenfield said he didn’t believe either person was wearing a seatbelt.
