Two children helicoptered to hospital after I-15 rollover in Utah
Two children were flown to hospital by medical helicopter Friday morning after a vehicle in which they were traveling in rolled over on Interstate 15 in Millard County.
A Chevy Trailblazer carrying two adults and six children rolled over when the driver overcorrected to the right after the vehicle drifted left, said Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Lawrence Hopper. A 10-year-old boy was ejected from the vehicle during the rollover.
The boy and a 3-year-old girl were taken by helicopter to Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City, Hopper said. One was in critical, but not life-threatening condition, added UHP Sgt. Todd Royce.
There had been no fatalities as of Friday afternoon, Hopper said.
Utah Highway Patrol responded to the accident in the southbound lane at milepost 134 about 7:00 a.m., said Connie Gorrel of the UHP. No other vehicles were involved in the accident, Hopper said.
