Also injured was Colorado City, Ariz., Town Marshal Sam Barlow who was treated and released following the accident.
Bertram Tillett, 19, Hill Air Force Base, remained in the Beaver County Jail for investigation of failure to stop and render aid at an injury accident. Tillett was arrested a short time following the accident by a Beaver County sheriff's deputy. Formal charges are pending.
The six injured people had stopped about 8 p.m. Friday to render aid to a St. George couple who's northbound car had skidded on ice and rolled over through the median of I-15, coming to rest on the southbound lane. While they were assisting the couple, a second southbound car spun out and slid sideways, running into the group and then into another vehicle. After coming to a stop, the car left the scene.
