SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah Highway Patrol says a Utah man died after falling out the back of a moving Jeep during a hunting trip.

Utah Highway Patrol says 28-year-old Nicholas J. Demas was standing on a homemade rack on the back of the Jeep with another man on Monday when a strap attached to the roll cage of the vehicle broke.

Officials say Demas fell from the vehicle and hit his head on the pavement.

The West Valley City man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officials say the men were bow hunting mule deer.
