CEDAR CITY — A single vehicle rollover on Interstate 15 caused one person to be transported by LifeFlight helicopter early Friday morning. Corporal Todd Johnson, of the Utah Highway Patrol, said the accident happened at around 9:06 a.m. on I-15, just North of Paragonah. Johnson says there were two occupants of the vehicle. One occupant, described as a woman in her 20s, was ejected when the vehicle rolled into the median and she suffered serious injuries. A LifeFlight helicopter was dispatched from St. George at 9:28 a.m. to transport her from the Parowan airport to Dixie Regional Medical Center. Johnson says the second occupant received only minor injuries. The identity of both occupants and the cause of the accident are still under investigation.
