A news release from Utah Highway Patrol said the crash occurred at approximately 7:50 p.m. on I-15 near mile post 175. Holden is in Millard County.

“A white 2015 Chevrolet Impala was traveling south on I-15, when the driver allowed the car to go off the left shoulder onto the rumble strips, overcorrected to the right, left the road to the right and rolled several times,” the news release said.
