TOOELE COUNTY, Utah – A woman suffered minor injuries, but she was flown to a hospital Sunday due to the remoteness of the area where here vehicle crashed.

Lawrence Hopper of the Utah Department of Public Safety said a 28-year-old woman was driving westbound on I-80 in Tooele County when the tire on the front left of the car blew out.
