WEBER COUNTY, Utah — One person was killed in a single-vehicle accident Sunday afternoon on a highway in Weber County.

According to Utah Highway Patrol, a Dodge pickup truck with a trailer was heading southbound on Trappers Loop Road (State Route 167) around 12:40 p.m. when it went off the right side of the road near milepost 6 (a few miles south of Pineview Reservoir and just north of the Weber-Morgan county line).

The driver tried to correct and go back onto the road, but the truck and trailer overturned.

The driver died from their injuries, and the sole passenger was uninjured.

The victim's name was not released as of Sunday evening. Officials did not state whether the driver was wearing a seat belt.

S.R. 167 was closed from about 1-5 p.m. as UHP investigated the crash scene. It has since reopened.

Ogden Canyon was scheduled to be closed from early Sunday morning until 3:30 p.m. due to road work, but WCSO said it was reopened early to alleviate the traffic due to the Trappers Loop closure.
