Four family members all from California and Mexico died Saturday morning in a rollover after investigators say the driver may have fallen asleep.
Ezequiel Vasquez, 48, of Hawthorne, Calif., was driving east on Interstate 70 when it appears he may have fallen asleep just before 5 a.m., said Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Mary Kaye Lucas. He failed to negotiate a turn near mile post 53, just east of Salina, and the four-door pickup rolled one and a half times.
The four passengers his daughter, his mother and two aunts were not wearing seat belts and were ejected from the truck, Lucas said. Two died at the scene and the other two died later at a hospital.
