TAYLORSVILLE- Four people were taken to hospitals in critical condition Saturday morning after police say a car ran a red light, causing an accident.

Sgt. Melody Gray of the Unified Police Department said a vehicle was driving westbound on 5400 South when it ran the red light on Bangerter Highway just before 2 a.m.

The vehicle that ran the red light was T-boned by a car traveling southbound on Bangerter Highway. Each vehicle had two people inside.

“All four of those occupants were transported to the hospital in critical condition,” Gray said. “They have since been upgraded to stable condition.”

Gray said they are investigating the driver who ran the red light for possible impairment.
