Two men were uninjured after their vehicle rolled down a 40-50 foot embankment Friday morning, Utah Highway Patrol officials reported.

Driver Kevin Dunn, 23, and passenger Michael Hurley, 23, were traveling north on State Route 89. At approximately 9 a.m. Dunn lost control of the vehicle when he came to a sharp curve in the road between mile markers 475-476, UHP said.

The car ran off the road to the right and rolled down the embankment. It came to rest upright near the edge of the Logan River.

Dunn and Hurley were able to flag down another motorist to get a ride to Logan to report the crash.

Speed was a factor in the crash. UHP says Dunn was driving too fast for the current road conditions.

UHP encourages motorists to drive slowly and exercise caution in winter driving conditions.
