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.

    I feel bad that this happened. His wife is my first cousin. Life is too short. Our prayers go out to all the families involved.
