BROOKSIDE, Washington County — A 57-year-old man was flown to a hospital after a car making an illegal U-turn collided with a truck, officials said.
A 19-year-old man was driving a passenger vehicle along state Route 18 just a mile west of Brookside at 12:30 p.m. Sunday. He made an illegal U-turn and turned into a Ford F-150, according to Utah Highway Patrol Cpl. Tara Wahlberg.
Officials called a medical helicopter to transport the driver of the truck for a possible heart attack, Wahlberg said.
An 18-year-old woman was also in the passenger vehicle; neither occupants sustained any major injuries, according to Wahlberg.
State Route 18 was temporarily closed at milepost 26 but has since been reopened.
