1 hospitalized after 2-truck crash in Washington 

WASHINGTON, UT – One person was sent to the hospital after a crash between a cement truck and a water truck in a construction zone on I-15 Thursday morning. 

As indicated in a report from KSLTV, a water truck exhibited mechanical issues at milepost 12. When that truck became disabled, that motorist got out of the vehicle and put out warning triangles. Troopers said a driver of a cement truck was coming up a fill and did not see the water truck or the signs. Only at the last minute did he see the disabled vehicle and drift off the road to avoid striking the truck. However, despite best efforts, the cement truck sideswiped the water truck. 

First responders took the cement truck driver to a hospital for treatment of his serious injuries, while the water truck driver was unharmed and did not require transportation to a hospital or treatment.
