A 53-year-old man remained in critical condition Monday, the day after his pickup truck and trailers toppled and crashed on northbound Interstate 15 about 8 miles south of Cedar City.
The Utah Highway Patrol said driver Mark Oliver's wife, Sara Oliver, 50, died at the scene of the 9:20 p.m. Sunday accident near mile post 49. A child, 12-year-old Emma Oliver, was in serious condition at a local hospital. All are from Cedar City, UHP Cpl. Todd Johnson said.
Mark Oliver was flown to a hospital in Las Vegas with life-threatening injuries, but was able to tell troopers at the accident scene that he was hauling two trailers — the first a travel trailer and the second one made from an old truck bed, loaded with two 4-wheeler ATVs — when the second trailer began to swerve.
