Two airlifted to hospital after getting hit by semi-truck in Kanarraville

IRON COUNTY, UT – A man and a woman, were seriously and critically injured in a crash involving a Jeep and semi-truck in Kanarraville Monday. 

The collision occurred at I-15 North around 6:30 pm, My Local Radio reported. 

Utah State Troopers speculated that a black Jeep Wrangler was trying to merge from the side of the road when it cut off a semi-truck. 

Speeding could have been a contributing factor in Monday’s crash. 

The semi-truck was traveling at high speed of 75 mph when the driver did not reduce his speed in time and hit the back of the Jeep Wrangler, traveling at a far lower rate. As a result, the Jeep traveled off course and overturned. 

The man and woman from the Jeep were extricated and airlifted to a hospital. 

The semi-truck driver was unharmed. 

Everyone involved in the collision was wearing seatbelts. 

The current condition of the man and woman is unknown. Troopers did not indicate if the semi-truck driver would be facing charges.
