Rollover Crash in So. Utah Sends 7 to Hospital

NEW HARMONY, Utah (AP) -- Authorities say two adults and five children are hurt after a rollover crash involving an SUV towing a trailer on Interstate 15 near the southern Utah town of New Harmony.

The Utah Highway Patrol says a man who was pinned in the driver's seat of the wrecked Ford Excursion was extricated by firefighters and flown by medical helicopter to a hospital in Las Vegas after the crash about 2 p.m. Thursday.

A woman and the children were taken by ambulance to a Cedar City hospital.

Witness Robert Adams of Delta tells The Spectrum of St. George that it appeared that a gust of wind caused the trailer to fishtail and trigger the crash.

The highway patrol says both the SUV and the trailer rolled over.
