IVINS – A utility truck rollover on Snow Canyon Parkway slowed traffic Monday morning.
At approximately 8 a.m., the Santa Clara/Ivins Police Department responded to a rollover on Snow Canyon Parkway east of the roundabout leading into Ivins. They discovered that a utility truck had somehow jumped the curb and rolled into a nearby wash.
SCIPD Capt. Rich Rodgers said the driver of the truck was unharmed.
“It’s amazing,” he said. “He didn’t have a scratch on him.”
Rodgers said the likely cause of the accident was distracted driving. The driver was issued a citation.
Traffic on Snow Canyon Parkway slowed due to the accident, as well as a crane being brought in to lift the utility truck out of the wash. Members of the Utah Highway Patrol joined SCIPD on scene to help with traffic.
