WASHINGTON COUNTY – A single-vehicle accident today left one woman in critical condition after she was ejected from the vehicle.
Corporal Todd Johnson said emergency personnel were called at 12:47 p.m. today after a passenger vehicle with two occupants lost control on Interstate 15 at mile marker 24.
Johnson said the car, traveling south, went off the left shoulder and hit a concrete barrier before crossing back into the right lanes and rolling several times. The 63-year-old female passenger was ejected from the vehicle.
The original reports stated the 65-year-old driver might have been pinned in the vehicle, however Johnson said the driver was able to walk around. A helicopter was called in and then later called off for the passenger, who was transported by ambulance in critical condition.
Johnson said the cause of the accident is under investigation.
