SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Authorities say a 62-year-old man died at a Salt Lake City hospital after being thrown from his pickup truck when it crashed into the back of a tractor-trailer and rolled down an embankment on Interstate 80 in Utah.

Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Todd Royce says passers-by pulled the motorist from a freezing creek and began cardio-pulmonary resuscitation before troopers and paramedics arrived at the crash scene a little before noon near Echo.

The man was flown by medical helicopter to a Salt Lake City-area hospital, where Royce says he died a few hours later.

His name wasn’t immediately made public.

Royce didn’t report that the tractor-trailer driver was hurt.
