WEBER COUNTY, Utah — A 19-year-old woman is in critical condition after a crash in Weber County early Monday morning.

Weber County Sheriff’s Office stated Tuesday that the crash occurred around 7:30 a.m. Monday as the woman was driving east on 12th Street near 4300 West.

The woman’s vehicle drifted onto the right shoulder of the road, and she over-corrected and was then struck broadside by a truck traveling westbound. The impact caused the woman’s car to begin to spin.

The woman was taken to a local hospital with critical injuries. The driver of the truck, a 31-year-old male, suffered minor injuries and was released at the scene.

Police are still investigating the cause of the crash, and they said so far no citations have been issued.
