Accident caused by drowsy driving, 1 killed others injured – UT
August 11, 2021

Washington County, Utah (St. George, UT) – Four cars were heading north on I-15 were included in a series of an accident on August 8, 2021, Sunday morning. The accident claims the life of one person.

The initial accident happened after a male operator of a gold Chevrolet Cruze fell asleep while driving just after 10 A.M. And drove out of his lane and into the side of a semi-tractor trailer.

The Cruze suffered severe damage on the occupant side and stopped in the middle of I-15 around New Harmoney (milepost 40), while the sideswiped commercial car brings off onto the right side of the highway. Another semi-tractor trailer heading at the back of the first incident slowed down and tried to change lanes to skip from hitting the stationary Cruze. When it slowed, a silver Nissan Rogue moving behind the second semi-truck crashed at the back of the trailer, causing the death of the male operator on impact and critically injuring a female occupant.

The couple in the Nissan were in their 70s and both put on their seatbelts. The operators of both commercial cars and the Cruze were not injured. The female was airlifted to St. George Regional Hospital.

The north side of the I-15 was blocked temporarily while it is not fully functional. The left emergency lane was reopened for northbound traffic, the operation on the road continued while using one lane only for around 2.5 hours.
