Authorities say the incident happened just after 2:00 p.m. on southbound I-15 near the Stoddard Wells Road off-ramp. Preliminary investigation suggests a commercial 18-wheeler was pulled onto the shoulder of the roadway in the area while the driver changed a tire. He told investigators that as he worked on the tire a red sedan approached from the road and crashed into the back of his truck’s trailer.
A woman and young child in the sedan were airlifted from the scene to area hospitals for treatment of serious injuries.
The investigation continues. No further information is currently available.
