LOGAN — A Brigham City man died and two other people were hospitalized after a two-vehicle crash early Sunday morning. Chad F. Scoffield was pronounced dead at the scene after being ejected from his vehicle.
Utah Highway Patrol troopers report Scoffield was driving a Chevy Blazer southbound on SR-23 when he ran a stop sign, broadsiding a Ford F-150 truck, traveling westbound on Valley View Highway, SR-30. The impact of the crash threw him from the SUV. A passenger in the Blazer, Shawn C. Burgess of Tremonton, was also injured. He was transported to the hospital by ambulance with several broken bones and cuts. Neither of the men were wearing seat belts.
The driver of the truck, Aaron Hathaway, was wearing a seat belt but still suffered several non life-threatening injuries. The 59-year-old Petersboro man was transported by ambulance to the hospital.
Troopers believe Scoffield may have been drunk at the time of the crash. His body was sent to the State Medical Examiner’s Office for testing.
The crash occurred around 12:45 a.m. It partially closed Valley View Highway for several hours while troopers investigated and cleared the scene.
