Utah Highway Patrol troopers report Delvin W. Staley was travelling east on Interstate-70 in a white Chevrolet Malibu. Near mile marker 223, the vehicle ran off the roadway to the left and then over-corrected.

The car crossed both eastbound lanes of travel and ran off the road to the right. It slid sideways down an embankment and rolled multiple times, before coming to a rest on its top.

Staley was ejected during the crash and died at the scene. The other occupant was transported to a Colorado hospital with minor injuries.

Troopers suspect speed and alcohol were factors in the crash. An investigation is ongoing.

Family posted on Staley’s Facebook page that he was full of energy and loved spending time with his children. A GoFundMe page has been started to raise money for funeral expenses.
