At approximately 2:30 a.m., a 17-year-old male driving a Chevrolet Cruz was traveling east on 27th Street in Ogden when he ran a stop sign and collided with a Ford Explorer traveling north through the intersection on Harrison Boulevard, according to a press release from Ogden police.

The Explorer rolled over and came to rest several feet from the intersection while the teen driving the Chevy Cruz continued north on Harrison Boulevard and collided with an unoccupied parked car.

The 22-year-old woman driving the Explorer was taken to an area hospital and is in critical condition. The sole passenger of the Explorer, a 19-year-old woman, was also transported and reported to be in serious but stable condition.

The teenaged boy driving the Chevy Cruz was taken to an area hospital in serious but stable condition. The 18-year-old female and only passenger in the Chevy also sustained serious injuries and was transported to the hospital.

While the investigation is ongoing, the press release states, investigators believe alcohol to be a factor.
