Lost load causes 2 accidents on I-15 near St. George
Utah Highway Patrol,
ST. GEORGE — Four drivers were caught in two separate accidents Monday when rolls of insulation fell off a truck on I-15.
The crashes occurred near milepost 10 outside St. George about 5:40 p.m. when drivers attempted to slow down and pass the spilled insulation and were rear-ended, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.
The male driver of one vehicle that hit the back of another car was taken by medical helicopter to a Las Vegas hospital. No information about his condition was available Monday.
No one was injured in the second accident, which happened within a minute of the first.
Northbound I-15 was closed for about 30 minutes while the medical helicopter was on scene, and the left lane remained closed an additional 90 minutes while an investigation was conducted, according to UHP.
The driver of the pickup truck that lost the rolls of insulation has contacted UHP, and troopers are following up with the driver.
