SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - One man is dead after an accident early Monday morning on I-80, West of Tooele.

The vehicle was pulling a U-Haul trailer and investigators say the driver fell asleep for a moment before rolling at milepost 70 near Delle.

The victim, his older brother, the brother's girlfriend, and their child were also in the car.   The brother was in the front seat and was ejected at the same time as his brother.  The woman and her child were wearing seat belts and only suffered very minor injuries.

I-80 was closed in the area for about three hours causing quite the back up, but was opened around 7:30.

Investigators say the family was moving to Utah at the time of the accident.
