HOLLADAY — A 22-year-old Taylorsville man was killed in a rollover crash Wednesday morning.

Just after 7 a.m., Sontiago Lobato was driving on Holladay Boulevard near 5300 South when he drifted over the center line into oncoming traffic, said Unified Police Sgt. Melody Gray. Lobato almost hit an oncoming vehicle, but then quickly veered back into his own lane, but lost control of the car, she said.

The vehicle went off the side of the road and rolled. The driver was partially ejected and killed, Gray said. It was undetermined as of Wednesday morning whether he was wearing a seat belt, she said.

Speed was believed to be a factor in the crash, according to police. Whether distracted driving and slick roads were also factors was still being investigated.
