Brian Bairett, public information officer for the Utah Highway Patrol, said the man is not a Utah resident.He did not release the man's identity because family notification has not been made."We don't know where his family is at, so that might take longer than normal," Bairett said. The man had identification from several states in his possession, making it difficult for troopers to determine which state he is from, Bairett said.He said investigators suspect the man was a resident at Iron County Care and Share.The motor home was in the right lane, traveling south at mile post 67 when the incident took place.Bairett said eyewitnesses reported that the man first jumped in front of a car that swerved and missed him before he jumped into the path of the motor home.Suicide is the logical conclusion, but an agent from the department of public safety will investigate the case further to determine if that was the motive, Bairett said."That's the common sense explanation, especially when he jumped two times," Bairett said.

"The speed limit no longer exists when it rains and snows ... drivers need to slow down," said Brian Bairett, trooper with the Utah Highway Patrol. Drivers should drive within their capabilities and should keep emergency supplies in their cars. Bairett suggested three tips for those driving in wintry conditions. First and foremost, slow down.Next, drivers of SUVs and 4-wheel-drive vehicles need to realize their limitations -- ice does not know the difference between vehicles and a bigger car will not handle slippery conditions well. Last, Bairett said cars should allow for a lot more following distance between themselves and the car in front of them.When conditions are not good, cars need additional space to slow down.
