37-year-old Ricky L. Rush lost his life on Saturday, April 21, 2012, seven miles southeast of Moab following a single-car rollover accident. KSL News reports that Rush was traveling in his pickup truck on an unpaved road when he lost control of the truck and it swayed to the right approximately 30 feet off of the road. The truck hit into a large boulder and rolled over. Rush was ejected from the truck at the time of the accident. No other individuals were in the truck with him. Authorities are still investigating the cause of the accident.
I offer my sincere condolences to the family of this man.
As a Utah personal injury attorney, I wish I had more information about how Ricky Rush lost control of his truck. Perhaps he had a medical condition. There could have been a defect with the vehicle. Sadly, it sounds like Mr. Rush was not wearing a seat belt. There are unanswered questions here that make this crash very puzzling. I’ll keep my eyes open if any additional information surfaces.
