WENDOVER — A 21-year-old man was taken by helicopter to a Salt Lake City hospital Thursday after a rollover crash near the Utah-Nevada border.

The crash occurred around 11:50 a.m. on eastbound I-80, about 13 miles east of Wendover. A silver Honda Civic went off the left side of the road and its driver over-corrected to the right, causing the car to cross both lanes and roll several times on the right side of the road.

The driver, who was the only person in the vehicle, was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle.
