Eagle Mtn: Utah County Prosecutor Rules Death An Accident

The Utah County Attorney’s Office will not file charges against a man who ran over and killed another man in November.

Brett L. Ostler, 29, of Magna, fell out of the truck after striking the driver, said Guy Probert, deputy attorney for Utah County. Ostler rode with Eric W. Porter, then 26, to a store before returning to a party in Eagle Mountain. When Porter said he did not want to remain at the party, Ostler got out of the truck and slammed the door, Probert said.

Porter yelled not to slam the door and Ostler opened the door and started punching Porter, Probert said. Porter’s foot slipped off the brake and hit the accelerator, running over Ostler, Probert said.

Probert said the death was an accident.-SLTrib
