MOAB, Utah, Feb. 15, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Utah Highway Patrol troopers were dispatched to two rollovers that landed vehicles in the Colorado River on Friday.

And seatbelts made the difference to the drivers, a tweet from the UHP Southeast Region office says:

“UHP State Troopers were dispatched to this truck and another vehicle rollover into the Colorado River this morning near Moab,” the post says.

  1. I am curious to know if either one got a citation . My husband also hit black ice and rolled his truck . The state trooper showed up at our house 9 hours later to get a statement and then proceeds to say you are required to have your car under control at all times !
