WASHINGTON, UT – A collision between a cement truck and a water truck in Washington County Thursday morning resulted in one individual being hospitalized in serious condition.
According to St. George News, the incident occurred when the water truck experienced a breakdown in the northbound lanes of I-15 near milepost 12, causing partial obstruction of the right lane.
As the driver of the water truck was in the process of setting up caution triangles, the cement truck approached from over a hillcrest and only noticed the presence of the other vehicle at the last moment.
Despite making an evasive maneuver to avoid the water truck, the cement truck ultimately collided with the rear of the vehicle. Subsequently, the cement truck struck the center concrete barrier before veering back to the right, blocking all lanes of traffic.
Emergency responders transported the cement truck driver to a nearby hospital in serious condition, while the driver of the water truck emerged from the incident unhurt.
