(KUTV) Saturday morning a GMC pick-up truck lost control causing fatal injuries after hitting a deceased cow in the middle of the road.

According to Utah highway Patrol, the crash happened at 5:10 a.m. traveling northbound on SR-89 near mile marker 296 in the city of Fairview.

Police say there was heavy fog in the area which caused the visibility of the driver to be low. The driver, 60-year-old Randall Hill from Fairview hit the cow and lost control of his truck.

The truck then ran off the road to the left and rolled over a fence into a power pole.

According to police, Hill was not wearing his seat belt and was partially ejected from his vehicle. He suffered fatal injuries from the crash and died on scene.
