ST. GEORGE — Three people were injured in a single-vehicle rollover on Interstate 15 Sunday morning.

According to Utah Highway Patrol trooper Joe Pastor, a blue Isuzu Rodeo was traveling southbound on I-15 near mile marker 13 when the vehicle drifted off of the left side of the road. The adult male driver overcorrected to the right before driving off of the right shoulder around 3 a.m.

The driver lost control of the vehicle before it rolled multiple times. A 10-year-old male passenger was fully ejected from the vehicle during the incident.

The male driver and adult female passenger sustained minor injuries. The 10-year-old boy sustained a severe head injury and was transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center via Gold Cross Ambulance before he was airlifted to the University Medical Center in Las Vegas in critical condition shortly after his arrival.

As of Monday, the boy was still in critical condition, according to UHP Sgt. Nick Street.
