      Utah man killed in rollover near Preston

      SALT LAKE CITY (AP) A 26-year-old Utah man has been killed in a single-vehicle rollover in Idaho.

      The Idaho State Patrol says Chet Atkinson of Weston died in the crash on Highway 36 near Preston about 6:40 p.m. Sunday.

      Troopers say he was headed east in a Dodge pickup truck when he drifted off the south side of the highway near mile marker 132.

      Investigators say he apparently overcorrected before he crashed through a guard rail and rolled down an embankment.

      Atkinson was not wearing a seat belt. He was ejected from the truck and died at the scene. The accident remains under investigation.
