One man has died and two more were sent to the hospital after an accident early Sunday morning at the intersection of SR-30 and SR-23 in Cache County.
According to Lieutenant Lee Perry of the Utah Highway Patrol. Brigham City resident Chad F. Scoffield, 53, was driving a black 2000 Chevrolet Blazer southbound on SR-23 at approximately 12:49 a.m. on Sunday when he ran the stop sign at SR-30, striking a westbound Ford F-150 pickup truck squarely on the passenger side.
Scoffield was not wearing a seat belt, and was ejected through the driver's side door due to the force of the impact. He was pronounced dead at the scene when emergency responders arrived. A passenger riding with Scoffield, 51-year-old Shawn C. Burgess of Tremonton, was also not wearing a seat belt, and suffered broken bones and cuts in the accident, though his injuries were described as non-life-threatening. Burgess was taken by ambulance to Logan Regional Hospital.
The driver of the pickup, identified as 59-year-old Aaron Hathaway of Petersboro, was wearing a seat belt, and also suffered broken bones and cuts in the accident. He also was transported to Logan Regional Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Investigators believe that alcohol may have played a role in the accident, and are awaiting blood test results from the medical examiner's office.
