After leaving the highway at mile post 42, in northern Washington County, the vehicle rolled and the roof caved in on the driver’s head, UHP reports. The man suffered a serious head injury and was flown to a Las Vegas hospital in critical condition.

Six other people in the Excursion — his family — had cuts and bruises and were taken to a Cedar City hospital in ambulances, said Trooper Jalaine Hawkes.

Everyone had been wearing their seat belts or were in a car seat. UHP has not yet identified the driver.
