TOOELE COUNTY, UTAH – One person was hospitalized in critical condition after a crash involving a pickup truck and a Ford pickup truck Friday.
Sgt. Cameron Roden of the Utah Highway Patrol said the crash happened just before 9 a.m. on state Route 138 near Grantsville.
According to state troopers, a blue Ford Raptor was traveling eastbound on SR 138 when it swerved into oncoming traffic and struck the semi, which was pulling two flat tires.
Roden said half of it was jackknifed and one of its tails came off. Both lanes of SR 138 were closed and the driver of the Ford was taken to an area hospital in critical condition.
The driver of the semi was not injured.
The semi also spilled between 100 and 200 gallons of fuel on the road and shoulder, and state and local medical personnel were called for cleanup efforts.
Troopers said they hope to clear the scene by 1:30 p.m. Friday.
