One hurt in rollover crash with boulder in Apple Valley

APPLE VALLEY, UT – A driver was hospitalized after he tried to drive past a boulder on a road, but instead hit it, falling down a hillside before the car rolled over Thursday. 

The collision took place before 5:30 p.m. in the area of Little Creek Mesa Road, St. George News reported. 

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said that a motorist got stuck trying to pass the large rock and called a relative to have him help him. The family member who got inside the stuck vehicle tried to help but then appeared to have driven the car “too close to the hillside” before losing control of the vehicle. The car then spiraled down the hill, rolled over, and struck a tree. 

The driver managed to get out of the car and climb up the hill approximately 200 feet before medics arrived and transported him to the hospital with a head injury and some bleeding.
