In St. George this last weekend, Sunday afternoon, a woman was traveling on I-15 when she crashed. At around 4:30 pm, the 25-year-old driver drifted from the center of the road, then over-corrected, forcing the vehicle to roll. Her name is not available as of Sunday, but she is from the St. George area. According to the Utah Highway Patrol statement, she was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the car.
The women was in critical condition, and a strong possibility of being paralyzed. Alcohol is not currently not a factor at this moment in the investigation. I-15 shut down for 45 minutes while emergency teams responded to the scene, including a medical helicopter.
