Investigators are looking into whether an Iowa man was impaired by prescription medication when he died after his truck rolled Monday in Sevier County.
About 8:18 a.m., Steve R. Johnson, 58, was speeding west on Interstate 70 when he approached a left-hand curve near Salina and drifted into the median, witnesses told the Utah Highway Patrol. He corrected his Ford F-250 into the westbound lanes, but then over-corrected and went across the eastbound lanes and off the highway near mile post 82, according to Utah Highway Patrol.
His silver truck went down a steep embankment and rolled once it reached the frontage road at the bottom. It kept rolling into a dry creek bed lined with large rocks, which tore the cab from the frame of the truck.
