Green River crash kills Californian

A California man died Sunday when he rolled his car on state Route 70 near Green River.

Matt T. Matsushita Jr., 61, was killed when the vehicle he was in rolled several times, the Utah Highway Patrol reported. Speed appeared to be a factor in the incident, and Matsushita was wearing a seat belt.

Utah Highway Patrol trooper Todd Johnson said Matsushita was likely distracted or fell asleep prior to the accident.
