COMPANY, Washington County One man is dead after being ejected from a truck on State Route 18 Saturday evening, according to Utah Highway Patrol.

Cpl. Quincy Breuer with the UHP said the man was driving near mile marker 40.5 in a pickup truck heading north. It was just before midnight, Breuer said.

The truck made a slight right turn, the driver noticed and overcorrected to the left, sending it across the southbound lanes and completely off the road.

Breuer said the truck overturned after he took off and the driver was thrown from the driver’s seat, killing him.

UHP has not released the identity of the driver or further said what might have caused him to go off-road.
