WASHINGTON COUNTY, Utah — A man is dead after losing control of his trailer, causing his car to roll over, and dying on the scene Sunday afternoon.
According to the Utah Highway Patrol, the man was driving southbound with a pickup truck hauling a travel trailer and a utility trailer loaded with a UTV on Interstate 15 near milepost 35 in Washinton County.
“The [utility trailer] began to whip and caused the pickup to veer off the right side of the road,” read a UHP release on the crash. “The trailers became detached, and the pickup truck rolled over.”
The man was restrained in his car but had fatal injuries.
Police will release more information and pictures pending family notification.
