A Utah man is dead and another injured after the two were in a single-vehicle car crash about seven miles from the Colorado-Utah state line on the morning of Dec. 11.

The deceased, Delvin W. Staley, age 30, of Logan, was ejected from the car when the crash occurred at about 9 a.m. According to a statement from the Utah Department of Public Safety, the driver ran off the road to the left then overcorrected to the right, slid sideways down an embankment and rolled multiple times before coming to a rest on its top.

Officers said Staley died on the scene and the other occupant, who officers did not name, sustained minor injuries. He was taken to Grand Junction for treatment.

Officers did not say which occupant was driving at the time of the accident. They said that speeding and alcohol were suspected to be factors in the crash.
