One person is confirmed dead in a rollover crash in Mesa County. The crash happened at about 3:20 Sunday afternoon on Highway 330, two miles north of Molina.

Emergency personnel from several agencies responded to a pickup truck on its roof in an irrigation ditch full of water. The water reached up to the door handles of the vehicle. The man inside was pronounced dead at the scene, a dog was also trapped in the truck, but survived. The pet is being taken care of by Mesa County Animal Services.

Crews used a large crane to remove the truck from the canal.
