SALTAIR, Utah (AP) — In a story March 11 about a rollover car accident, The Associated Press reported erroneously that the person who was killed was a Lyft driver. A Lyft driver discovered and reported the accident that involved a driver of another vehicle.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Police: Driver, 26, killed in rollover accident near Saltair
Police say a 26-year-old driver is dead after being ejected from the vehicle in a rollover accident east of Saltair
SALTAIR, Utah (AP) — Police say a 26-year-old driver is dead after being ejected from the vehicle in a rollover accident east of the Saltair.
They have identified the man as Aaron Roll of Holladay.
Unified Police say Roll was thrown from the car sometime before 3:30 a.m. Saturday along a frontage road.
A Lyft driver passing by discovered the accident and reported it to police.
Investigators say physical evidence at the scene indicates Roll veered into the weeds and apparently overcorrected, rolling his vehicle.
The Deseret News reports that a concert was held at the Saltair venue Friday night and the accident likely occurred after that.
