Alcohol suspected cause of rollover on SR 123
An East Carbon man was transported to Castleview Hospital Saturday night after rolling a pickup truck on State Road 123 near the East Carbon Development Corporation.
Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Travis Barrett reported on that Daniel Pacheco, 54, had rolled a late model pickup four times near mile post 5 on SR 123 at approximately 8:30 p.m.
Pacheco was transported to Castleview Hospital via ambulance after being attended to by Wellington Rescue and Carbon County EMTs.
According to Trooper Barrett, Pacheco was cited for DUI (Alcohol) as well as several other traffic related violations related to the rollover.
"As he did have serious injuries and would be kept at the hospital for an undetermined amount of time, Pacheco was not booked into jail," said Barrett. "He was instead cited and released at the hospital."
Traffic along the dark state highway was impacted for nearly an hour as crews worked to first extricate and then transport Pacheco.
