According to Utah Highway Patrol reports, Prutch was driving a 2005 GMC Envoy when he may have fallen asleep at the wheel causing the vehicle to leave the roadway. The crash happened around 7:40 a.m. on July 28 about 15 miles north of Paragonah.
Marks at the scene show the driver may have tried to over correct the SUV causing it to swerve to the right and left before rolling 3 1/2 times before coming to a landing on it's right side. Prutch was deceased by the time officers arrived.
A 47-year-old passenger in the vehicle was trapped by her right leg under the door.
She was life flighted by helicopter to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George.
UHP troopers say speed may have been a factor in the accident.
