Iron County, UT – 3 Injured, 1 Critically, After Pickup Rollover On Horse Hollow RdUtah Legal News
Iron County, UT (August 4, 2019) – An early morning crash in Iron County resulted in the injury of three occupants on Friday, August 2nd. Officials from the Iron County Sherriff’s Department reported to the crash at around 1:44 a.m. in a remote party of the county at Horse Hollow Rd., many miles west of Parowan Gap.
The crash involved a Ford pickup truck carrying three 18-year-olds, two males and one female.
Reports indicate that the truck left and re-entered the roadway, and the driver over-corrected causing the vehicle to roll over. Two of the three occupants were ejected during the crash. One of the injured was taken to Dixie Regional Medical Center via Intermountain Life Flight helicopter for treatment of critical injuries.
The driver and the other passenger were also seriously injured and taken to Cedar City Hospital by ambulance.
Intoxication may have been a factor. The cause of the crash is under investigation by Utah Highway Patrol.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Rollover Accidents in Utah
Rollover crashes can result in significant injuries to the occupants of a vehicle.
If a passenger isn’t properly secured, they could be ejected from the vehicle or hit someone else in the car, becoming a projectile. There is also a likely chance there will be significant property damage, as rollovers involve vehicles that flip over many times before coming to a stop. In some cases, victims may be eligible to regain lost compensation with the help of a Salt Lake City car accident lawyer.
