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.
UPDATE: UHP says the death toll in a massive 22 vehicle pile up on I-15 in Millard County has risen to 8, some of who were children. 10 people were transported to the hospital with 3 in critical condition.
