MONA, Utah (ABC4 News) – Southbound I-15 has reopened after a serious injury crash near the Mona exit.

According to Utah Highway Patrol, a 2008 Chevrolet Malibu was traveling north on I-15 when it lost control, crossed the median, and hit a southbound 2015 Audi. The crash was so violent that police say the Malibu split in two with one part landing in the median and the second part, containing the driver, rolling across southbound lanes hitting a third vehicle, a Hyundai Sonata.
