KANOSH, Utah — Eight people died in a multi-car pileup on I-15 near Kanosh on Sunday. Utah Highway Patrol reports all lanes have been reopened after the deadly crash. 

High winds in Millard county caused a sand or dust storm and visibility was impaired. The poor visibility led to the deaths of  the eight people, including some children. Five of the eight people killed in the crash were traveling in one vehicle. Two others who died were traveling together in another vehicle. At least 10 people were transported to area hospitals, three in critical condition.

 

More than 22 vehicles were involved in the accident. UHP reports several individuals were transported to hospitals in critical condition by either ground or air ambulances. 

Utah Highway Patrol asked for troopers from Richfield and Beaver to assist. The crash is still being investigated and cleaned up. Authorities are also continuing to contact the families of those  who died.

This story will be updated.
