TOOELE COUNTY, Utah — One person has died and another is in poor condition after a vehicle rolled multiple times on I-80 Sunday morning.

Utah Highway Patrol reported that a pickup traveling eastbound lost control around 6:20 a.m. near the Salt Flats Rest Area exit (about nine miles east of the Utah-Nevada border).

The two male occupants were ejected from the vehicle. It does not appear either was wearing a seatbelt.

UHP troopers attempted life-saving measures until medical arrived, but one of the passengers was declared dead at the scene. The other was transported by medical helicopter to a nearby hospital in poor condition.

Troopers are investigating the accident, including trying to determine if impairment was a factor.
