PROVO, Utah — A 25-year-old man is in critical condition after crashing his scooter in a construction zone on a Provo roadway, Friday night.

Authorities received reports of the single-vehicle crash at about 9:56 p.m., which occurred at 1747 North Canyon Road.

Witnesses driving in front of the man operating a Sanyang Cabo 125 scooter, told police the victim was traveling south and passed them before drifting across their lane and into the construction zone, according to a Facebook post from Provo police.

“The driver hit a large pile of gravel causing himself and the vehicle to go airborne,” the post states.

The man was taken to Utah Valley Regional Medical Center and is currently in critical condition.
