County Sheriff’s Report

A 35-year-old North Summit man died Saturday when his vehicle rolled several times on a dirt road and went over an embankment near the Weber River in Henefer, the authorities said.

Shane Sexton might have been traveling 80 mph when the vehicle flipped, said Josh Wall, a spokesman for the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.

Sexton appears to have lost control of the vehicle at about 7:30 p.m. according to Wall.

The frontage road in North Summit parallels Interstate 84. The man was ejected from the vehicle and speed and alcohol were likely factors in the crash, Wall said.
