GRANTSVILLE — Troopers have identified a Bountiful semitruck driver who was found deceased inside his rig after it crashed and ended up on its side Friday.

The driver and sole occupant, Duane M. Wagstaff, 54, was unconscious upon troopers’ arrival and was later pronounced dead at the scene, according to a statement from the Utah Highway Patrol.

That incident happened on I-80 near Grantsville about 10:45 a.m. when Wagstaff’s semitruck, which was pulling double trailers, drifted off the right side of the freeway and the tractor and trailers overturned and came to rest on its top.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation, troopers said Sunday.
