BINGHAM COUNTY, Idaho (AP) -- The Bingham County Sheriff's office says a man killed in an accident earlier this week was driving a stolen truck. It was the third vehicle he had stolen that day.

Local 8 News reports that Bingham County Sheriff Craig Rowland says 33-year-old James Barry on Thursday stole a Ford truck with a cattle trailer attached to it. He then abandoned the truck to steal a second truck. After not getting very far, Barry got stuck on a sandbar and stole a 2007 Dodge Ram truck.

Rowland says Barry wrecked the third stolen truck and later succumbed to his injuries.

The sheriff added that Rowland had several warrants for him in California and had been arrested several times in Bonneville County.
