WASHINGTON COUNTY, Utah — One person needed to be extracted from their car after a three-vehicle crash Monday afternoon.
Hurricane Valley Fire & Rescue said at approximately 2:30 p.m., their crews were dispatched to a crash involving two passenger cars and a semi-truck on State route 59 at milepost 13.
“In total, there were four patients transported to the hospital, with one patient having to be extricated out of the vehicle,” the Facebook post stated.
The road was reopened at 3:30 p.m.
Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Roden told KSL TV the semi ran into the back of a Honda Civic when the Civic suddenly slowed.
He said the impact caused a chain reaction, pushing the Civic into eastbound lanes and hitting a Mazda.
All passengers in the cars were injured, but none of the injuries were life-threatening.
