A motorist died Monday in Washington County after he drove through a construction area and flipped down an embankment into a quarry.
The man was driving north on Interstate 15 near Toquerville about 2:15 p.m. when his Chevrolet Corvette left the road to the west, crossing into a construction area and onto a dirt median that ended in a ravine, troopers wrote in a news statement. The Corvette went off the embankment, flipped end over end in midair and struck a quarry of boulders, landing on its roof.
The driver died at the scene. Authorities would not release the man's name pending family notifications.
