Washington County, UT – 3-Vehicle Collision on I-15 Leaves Two InjuredUtah Legal News
Washington County, UT (April 9, 2019)- Just after midnight on Monday, April 8, Utah Highway Patrol responded to a collision on the northbound side of Interstate 15.
Reports of the incident state that a male in a Mitsubishi Lancer was traveling north through a construction area, next to a semi-truck, when the semi-truck shifted into his lane. The driver of the Mitsubishi veered his wheel to miss being struck by the semi-truck and, as a result, the Mitsubishi went into the plastic water barriers. The Mitsubishi then spun around and came to rest facing the southern direction while in the outside lane of the interstate.
Shortly after coming to rest, the driver of a pickup truck, which was traveling northbound, did not see the Mitsubishi. As a result, he struck the vehicle head-on going 70 MPH. The impact of the collision caused the Mitsubishi to spin around before becoming lodged under a second semi’s trailer.
The front passenger in the Mitsubishi was severely injured. The passenger inside the pickup truck sustained a serious head injury. Both victims were transported to an area hospital for medical treatment.
We pray both victims are able to make a fast and full recovery from the injuries sustained in this collision.
