UTAH — Three vehicles were involved in an accident on State Route 40 Saturday night near mile marker 126.

Sgt. Mary Kaye Lucas of the Utah Department of Public Safety said a semi trailer traveling west veered across the center line and struck a Dodge Durango at about 8 p.m.

The Durango then hit a pickup truck that was traveling west, and the pickup truck rolled on its side. The semi trailer also rolled on its side, and it destroyed a guard rail in the area.

Lucas said the driver of the semi trailer had to be extracted, but he sustained only minor injuries. There were six people in the Durango, and they received only minor injuries. The two individuals in the pickup truck were treated at the scene and released.

Lucas said the cause of the accident remains under investigation. She said the driver of the semi trailer told authorities he couldn’t remember why he veered.
