Beaver, UT – 5-Year-Old Killed In Wreck On I-15 In Iron County

Beaver, UT (March 29, 2021) – According to authorities, a 5-year-old child was killed during a car accident on Interstate 15 in Iron County. The fatal accident took place on Sunday, March 28th.

Officials from the Utah Highway Patrol stated that the driver of an Infiniti QX50 decreased speed due to tire debris in the roadway just outside of Beaver, as did the driver of a Mazda CX-9 behind the Infiniti.

In an effort to avoid a collision, a Toyota Tacoma tried to change lanes but was unable to do so in time and crashed into the Mazda. The force of the impact pushed the Mazda into the back end of the Infiniti.  

A 5-year-old girl who was in a forward-facing child restraint seat in the Mazda sustained fatal injuries. 

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.

The state of Utah has seen a regular increase in its fatal vehicle collision rate over the last five years.

For instance, in 2016, 281 fatal collisions occurred throughout the state, designating an increase of 25 from the previous year.
