County Sheriff’s Report
July 2, 2007
Alcohol appears to have been a factor in a traffic crash that killed two Utah County residents when they suffered head and torso injuries June 30 when a 1993 Ford Ranger tipped over near Wallsburg in Wasatch County, authorities say.
Provo resident April M. Lewis, 30, died after she was ejected from the pickup truck. The driver of the truck, 23-year-old Martin Gonzalez Sanchez, of Orem, also died at the scene after he was partially ejected.
The single-vehicle crash occurred on State Road 128 near Heber on June 30 at 11:28 p.m. Investigators say Sanchez failed to make a left-hand turn and drove off the right side of the road striking a signpost and the end of a guardrail.
The truck overturned onto its roof on top of Lewis, a report from the Utah Highway Patrol states.
Along with impairment, speed might have also been a factor in the crash, according to Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Randall Richey, who added that an investigation into the crash was underway.
At the time of the crash the occupants of the vehicle were not wearing their seat belts, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.
