ST. GEORGE — A St. George man died Saturday after he and his father were involved in a rollover crash and then struck by another vehicle after they climbed out of their truck.
St. George resident Lorenzo Longinos-Perez, 46, was driving a white pickup with his 29-year-old son, Lazaro Longinos-Perez, as a passenger going northbound on state Route 18 about 15 miles away from St. George when they hit a patch of slush left from a hail storm, the Utah Highway Patrol reports.
The pickup veered off of the road to the right, rolled and came to a rest on its side, according to the UHP. The father and son were climbing out of their vehicle when a Cadillac ran over the same patch of slush and hit them both.
Lazaro Longinos-Perez was life-flighted to Dixie Regional Hospital, where he died Saturday from his injuries, police said. His father was transported to the same hospital with a broken leg, broken pelvis, and other injuries, but UHP officers say he's expected to recover.
Police report the male driver of the Cadillac and his female passenger were not injured in the crash.
