A man died Saturday afternoon north of Alta near the state line after a truck collided with his four-wheeler.

Teton County Search and Rescue responded to the call, according to Chief Advisor Cody Lockhart, but by the time they were en route, Fremont County law enforcement officers had already shown up at the scene on Coyote Meadow Road and pronounced the man dead.

The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office declined to comment, referring the News&Guide to Search and Rescue, which provided the details above.

The man who died was Rene Alan Alvarado, 24, said Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue. Alvarado’s cause of death is still undetermined, Blue said.

Alvarado is survived by his parents, three older sisters, nieces and nephews, according to an obituary on Flamm Funeral Home’s website. The obituary can found at TinyURL.com/29cjk5cw.
