PHOTOS: Two rollovers less than an hour apart in the Virgin River Gorge near Littlefield, Arizona, kept emergency personnel busy as two occupants were flown to the hospital after one was found trapped under a vehicle early Thursday morning. The first rollover was reported shortly after midnight MST, involving a GMC Envoy that was traveling north on Interstate 15 near Littlefield when the driver “was possibly attempting to pass a commercial vehicle” in the construction zone near mile marker 12 and realized too late that he ran out of room, Arizona Highway Patrol Trooper Matt Jenkins said. The driver lost control of the SUV when he overcorrected, sending the vehicle off the soft shoulder where it rolled. The driver was no longer at the scene when the trooper arrived, but a medical crew caught up with the man at a nearby gas station.
