ST. GEORGE — Shortly after 3:30 p.m. Sunday in a remote area of Washington County, two female occupants were taken to the hospital after the Jeep they were riding in rolled over on Apex Mine Road, approximately three miles from Bloomington.
One of the injured is believed to have suffered a broken hand.
Three other occupants suffered only minor bumps and bruises in the accident said incident commander St. George Fire Department Battalion Chief Robert Hooper.
The ages of the occupants range from minor children to adults. Their exact residence is unavailable, but they are said to live in the immediate area.
The cause of the rollover is unknown, but the accident happened on a sharp turn on the dirt road which could have been a factor.
According to Hooper, the Jeep appeared to have rolled once. There were no ejections and everyone had been wearing their seat belt.
