(KSL News) -- A dramatic rollover on the freeway during the morning commute sent three people to the hospital. A car ended up upside down on Interstate 15 and 3500 South.
Utah Highway Patrol troopers say, for some reason a Jeep driver in the far right northbound lane lost control and sped across six lanes of traffic.
He hit a car carrying a pregnant woman, causing it to flip. A rider on a motorcycle passing the accident tried to avoid it, and in the process went down.
The motorcycle rider suffered minor injuries. The pregnant woman was taken to the hospital in serious condition. The driver of the jeep and a child from the jeep were also hospitalized.
Sgt. Andy Campbell, Utah Highway Patrol: "We're still not 100 percent sure what the cause was. Apparently the driver either fell asleep or blacked out. We're having him checked out to see what the problem is there."
Some northbound lanes were temporarily shut down, clogging rush-hour traffic for about an hour and a half.
