ST. GEORGE, Utah — I-15 was being cleaned up after a semi-truck rolled over Thursday night near St. George, according to Utah Highway Patrol.

Sergeant Cameron Roden with UHP said, at about 9:32 p.m. last night, a Washington County deputy was stopping a car heading north on I-15 near the Arizona state line when sedan, that was in the left lane, slowed down and attempted to cut across to the right shoulder.

Sgt. Roden said the car was sideswiped by a semi-truck pulling two trailers that was in the right lane.
