On March 12, 2023 at 2:36 PM, a white Tesla sedan was traveling South on I-15 in the area of mile marker 240, just South of the Utah County line. The Tesla lost control in the slushy conditions and left the highway to the right where it struck a cable barrier, causing it to rebound across the lanes into the median. Shortly after, a PT Cruiser also lost control and spun into the median at the same location. The PT Cruiser struck the parked Tesla with its rear end. The female driver of the PT Cruiser was injured and transported to the hospital. The male passenger in the PT Cruise suffered fatal injuries. The crash investigation continues and the identity of the deceased will be released pending family notification.
