RIVERTON, Utah – A Provo man is dead after his pickup truck rolled off the Mountain View Corridor in Riverton on Friday morning.

Police say witnesses reported seeing 41-year-old David Chad Mortensen’s truck swerving in the northbound lanes before it over-corrected, flipping the Ford F-150 onto the median near 13400 South at around 9 a.m. Friday.

Mortensen was pinned inside his truck and died at the scene.

Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal said investigators are still working to determine why Mortensen began to swerve, but speed doesn’t appear to be a factor.
