LOGAN — A Brigham City man died after apparently running a stop sign and broadsiding another vehicle west of Logan early Sunday, the Utah Highway Patrol reported.
Just before 1 a.m., Chad Scoffield, 53, was driving a Chevrolet Blazer south on state Route 23 when he failed to stop at the intersection with state Route 30, striking a westbound Ford F-150, according to a news release from UHP.
Scoffield was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle, suffering fatal injures, troopers said. A passenger in the SUV, Shawn Burgess, 51, of Tremonton, was also unrestrained but had injuries that were not considered life threatening.
The driver of the pickup truck, Aaron Hathaway, 59, of Petersboro, Cache County, was also transported to the hospital and is expected to survive.
The accident remains under investigation, troopers said, noting that alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.
