A 72-year-old Delta man died Tuesday night after he lost control his truck while pulling a camp trailer on Interstate 15 near Scipio, the Utah Highway Patrol reported Wednesday.

John M. Doyle was driving northbound on I-15 at about 7 p.m. when the trailer began with sway back and forth several miles south of Scipio in Millard County.

Doyle lost control and veered into the median, where both the truck and trailer rolled, according to the UHP.

Doyle and his wife, Patricia A. Doyle, 70, and their 5-year-old grandson — none of whom were wearing seatbelts — all were ejected from the truck.

All three were transported by ground ambulance to Fillmore Hospital, where John Doyle was pronounced dead. His wife was flown to Utah Valley Regional Medical Center, where she was in critical condition Wednesday afternoon.

The young boy was treated for minor cuts on his arm and head and was to be released to his family, the UHP said.
