SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — Two people were seriously injured in a rollover crash on Interstate 80 Sunday afternoon, closing the freeway in one direction for a few hours.
According to Utah Highway Patrol, a pickup truck hauling a trailer lost control and rolled on westbound I-80 near mile 166, right next to Echo Reservoir.
The two occupants in the vehicle were airlifted to a hospital in serious condition, but UHP says their injuries are not life-threatening. One of them lost part of their arm. Both were wearing seat belts.
The Park City Fire Department said both had to be extricated from the vehicle — along with a dog, which they said is "doing well and being taken care of."
The Utah Department of Transportation announced around 4:45 p.m. that the freeway was closed to westbound traffic due to the accident. One lane reopened around 6:15 p.m., then all lanes were back open by 8 p.m.
