VIDEO: Two drivers were transported to the hospital after a minivan crossed into oncoming traffic and struck a pickup pulling a trailer nearly head-on, police say. Shortly before 11 a.m., Utah Highway Patrol troopers and emergency personnel were dispatched to state Route 18 near mile marker 16 for a two-vehicle crash involving a silver Kia minivan and a black Dodge pickup truck pulling a flat-bed trailer. Upon arrival, the 71-year-old driver in the minivan, who was bleeding heavily from a head wound, was found trapped inside the mangled vehicle and had to be extricated. The driver of the pickup truck was also injured and both were transported by ambulance to Dixie Regional Medical Center for treatment, Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Jim Jessop said.
