LEEDS – Two people were transported to the hospital Tuesday morning after their vehicle rolled near southbound Interstate 15, mile marker 22, just south of Leeds.
Shortly after 8 a.m., the single vehicle traveling southbound on I-15 lost control on the wet roadway, Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Shawn Hinton said, and went off the road and rolled.
There were two occupants in the vehicle, a man and a woman, and both were transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George with minor injuries, Hinton said.
“We’ve got a large amount of water on the road,” he said, “and generally these crashes are associated with going too fast and hydroplaning and losing control.”
The rollover is still under investigation as this report is published.
“The best advice would be,” Hinton said, “when it’s raining, slow down.”
This report is based on preliminary information provided by authorities and may not contain the full scope of findings.
