A boy remained in serious condition Tuesday, the day after being injured in one of two crashes partially blamed on a pickup truck that lost part of its load of insulation rolls on Interstate 15 near St. George.
Utah Highway Patrol Cpl. Todd Johnson said the 30-year-old male driver of the pickup truck was cited for spilling his load about 5:40 p.m. in the northbound lanes near milepost 10.
The first collision occurred when a motorist slowed after seeing the insulation in the road and was rear-ended by a second car, UHP said. A male child in the second car suffered serious injuries and was taken by medical helicopter to a Las Vegas hospital.
