At about 9:45 p.m. the night of July 27, a Colorado State Patrol trooper attempted to stop a 2007 Toyota Camry near Delta. The vehicle took off and crashed within one minute at 2000 Road and G Road. The sole occupant and driver, Devin Jaimez, 26, of Helper, Utah, was pronounced dead at the scene. He was not using a seat belt at the time of the crash. The Colorado State Patrol's initial investigation indicates that the vehicle, going a high rate of speed, went into a skid and off the left side of the roadway, rolling and ejecting Jaimez. Driving under the influence is also considered a possible contributing factor. No other parties were injured.
It was later determined the Toyota Camry had been reported stolen out of Spanish Fork, Utah.
