WASHINGTON COUNTY – Debris on the highway contributed to a rollover accident on Interstate 15 Friday evening.

Utah Highway Patrol responded to a call at 5:18 p.m. concerning a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am which had rolled over in the area of milepost 16.5 southbound on I-15.

    Sad about the debris on the road; once I ran over a bed frame on I-15 near Midvale. Couldn’t change lanes to avoid it. I was mad.
