Pickup driver slides off road, strikes cable barrier on I-15

CEDAR CITY — A man received minor injuries when the pickup truck he was driving went off the shoulder of Interstate 15 and struck a cable barrier Tuesday afternoon.

The incident occurred at approximately 5 p.m. on northbound I-15 near mile marker 59 involving a maroon Toyota pickup truck.
