LEEDS — Leeds Ambulance transported one man to the hospital Saturday night after he swerved to miss a vehicle and rolled his SUV near mile marker 27 on southbound Interstate 15.
Just before 7 p.m., a man driving a brown Dodge Durango was traveling southbound on I-15, Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Lars Gardner said. The man told troopers he was going the speed limit as he neared mile marker 27, but he came up behind another vehicle that was traveling much slower.
The man swerved to miss the vehicle and overcorrected, Gardner said, crossing traffic lanes and going onto the shoulder. The Durango then rolled and landed in bushes on the side of I-15.
A passerby called 911 and, shortly after, the man in the SUV was able to call 911, as well, Gardner said.
UHP troopers, Leeds Fire Department and Washington County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene.
Leeds Ambulance transported the man to Dixie Regional Medical Center in stable condition.
The Durango was towed.
