CEDAR CITY — A mother and daughter were transported to Valley View Medical Center in Cedar City after their vehicle rolled on Highway 56 near mile marker 38 Friday afternoon.
The daughter, 22, was driving a Chevrolet Blazer with her mother, who is in her 50s, as a passenger. They were traveling eastbound on Highway 56 near mile marker 38 when, for a reason unknown at this time, the vehicle veered off the road to the right. The driver overcorrected left and then overcorrected right, which caused the vehicle to roll, said Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Lawrence Hopper.
The mother, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle and suffered deep lacerations to her legs. The daughter suffered a broken arm. It was not confirmed whether the daughter was wearing her seatbelt.
The mother and daughter were transported by ambulance to Valley View Medical Center.
The investigation is ongoing, but drugs are believed to be a factor.
