Initial Description:
On April 1, 2020 at approximately 1823 hours, a white Subaru was traveling south on I-15 near 5400 south with a 19-year old driver and 15-year old front seat passenger. Witnesses indicated the Subaru was trying to change lanes between a dump truck and a pumper truck and clipped the dump truck with the driver side rear of the Subaru. This caused the Subaru to spin and strike the concrete pumper in the rear corner and tore the passenger door off. The Subaru spun several times and the 15-year old passenger was ejected. Medical personnel transported the 15-year old to IMC in critical condition. I-15 is closed at 5300 South for crash reconstructionists to gather evidence for our investigation.
