UTAH COUNTY -- Three people are serious to critical condition after colliding with a truck pulling a horse trailer on Interstate 15 in Utah County Sunday afternoon, and one of three horses in the trailer had to be put down.

At approximately 11:30 a.m., three individuals in a passenger car were traveling south on I-15 near Pleasant Grove when the driver lost control of the vehicle, Utah Highway Patrol officials say.

The passenger car spun out and was t-boned by a truck pulling a horse trailer, according to UHP.
