OREM -- Police are identifying a 42-year-old man who died after being shot in the back and crashing a car in Orem.
Officials say Orem resident Rupert E. Miley was pronounced dead at a hospital after the wreck, which happened about 3 a.m. Tuesday.
Orem police Lt. Craig Martinez says authorities have recovered a gun and questioned the passenger, who wasn't injured.
Martinez says the four-door sedan traveled down three blocks of the major thoroughfare like a pinball, knocking over light poles, traffic signs and a fire hydrant before coming to rest in the middle of the road.
Police called the crash suspicious and are investigating the circumstances that led up to it.
