ST. GEORGE — A woman veered her car off the road and crashed into the median and cable barriers on Interstate 15 Monday night because she believed there was something in the road ahead of her.
Around 8:30 p.m., a woman driving a passenger car south on I-15 near milepost 8 thought she saw something in the road and swerved to avoid it, Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Mike Murphy said.
The woman lost control of the car when she swerved and veered left off the roadway and into the median. The car then hit the gutter that goes through the median, causing the car to spin around and hit the cable barrier.
Though the woman wasn’t wearing a seat belt, Murphy said, she escaped injury. She was “just a little shaken up,” he said.
The woman was issued a citation for failing to remain in a single lane as well as a warning for not wearing a seat belt, Murphy said.
The driver was the sole occupant of the car. No other vehicles or individuals were involved in the incident.
The vehicle had to be towed from the scene.
