ST. GEORGE — A truck rolled off state Route 14 in Iron County Thursday afternoon after a storm pelted the road with nearly three inches of hail.
Utah Highway Patrol responded to the single-vehicle rollover involving a red pickup truck at 2:09 p.m. near mile marker 19 on SR-14. An 18-year-old woman driving the truck was the only person in the vehicle.
At the time of the rollover, the road was covered in slush as a result of the hailstorm, UHP Sgt. Nick Street said.
The truck slipped off the road and rolled several times before coming to rest in a meadow.
Medical personnel responded to the crash, but the woman did not require transport to the hospital.
The rollover did not warrant issuing a citation to the driver, Street said, due to the “bizarre” weather conditions.
“Troopers said the squall left close to three inches of hail on this spot of the roadway,” Street said.
The hailstorm was part of a large storm system moving through parts of Southern Utah Thursday, inundating roads and communities in Iron County and triggering a flash flood warning in Garfield and Kane counties.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement and may not contain the full scope of findings.
