SALT LAKE CITY -- A 26-year-old man has been killed in a single-vehicle rollover in Idaho.

The Idaho State Patrol says Chet Atkinson of Weston died in the crash on Highway 36 near Preston about 6:40 p.m. Sunday.

Troopers say he was headed east in a Dodge pickup truck when he drifted off the south side of the highway near mile marker 132.

Investigators say he apparently overcorrected before he crashed through a guard rail and rolled down an embankment.

Atkinson was not wearing a seat belt. He was ejected from the truck and died at the scene. The accident remains under investigation.
