Idaho man killed in Saturday accident
An accident a mile west of Riverside Saturday evening left one Idaho man dead and two others with minor injuries.
According to a report from the Utah Highway Patrol, Judd Ravsten, 77, of Malad, was heading north in his Chevy Silverado truck on 6000 West where near the junction of SR-30 and came to a stop sign. A second car, driven by a teenager from Malad with a teenager from Bear River City in the passenger seat, was heading east on SR-30 at the same time. The report says Ravsten failed to completely stop at the stop sign and proceeded onto SR-30, where the second car was unable to stop in time. Ravsten’s truck was t-boned, which caused it to roll. Although he was wearing a seatbelt, Ravsten was partially ejected during the roll and suffered a severe head injury. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver and passenger of the second car were taken to Bear River Valley Hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries. The pair was cited for seatbelt violations.
