St. George, UT – Injuries and Death Follow Accident on I-15Utah Legal News
St. George, UT (May 20, 2019) – A deadly accident took place on Monday, May 20th that affected the northbound lanes of traffic on Interstate 15. The accident is reported to have occurred shortly before 4:00 in the afternoon.
Officers from the Utah Highway Patrol and several other emergency response teams arrived at the scene of an accident that involved a red Dodge Durango rolling onto its roof on Interstate 15, near mile marker 110 just before Beaver.
Initial reports from the Department of Public Safety seem to indicate that the driver of the Dodge lost control of the vehicle and rolled off the right-hand side of the road where it struck a street sign. The resulting impact crushed the roof of the vehicle inward.
The Dodge had two female occupants, one driver, and one passenger. The passenger was an elderly woman who was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. The driver was transported to nearby Beaver Valley Hospital for medical treatment of her injuries.
Reports state that both women were wearing their seat belts at the time of the accident and it is believed that a recent hailstorm that had left icy patches on the roadway played a role in the deadly accident.
We offer our sincerest condolences to the friends and family of the woman who lost her life in this tragic accident. Our hearts go out to you during this very difficult time. We also wish a full and speedy recovery to the woman who was injured as a result of this accident.
