HEBER, Utah – A man is in extremely critical condition following a multiple vehicle accident in Heber Saturday afternoon.

According to the Utah Highway Patrol (UHP), at approximately 3:13 p.m. Saturday, a Range Rover was headed westbound on SR-40 near Heber City limits, while a Dodge truck and a Subaru were headed eastbound.

“Preliminary evidence shows the Range Rover’s driver allowed his vehicle to drift left out of his travel lane,” UHP said in a statement. “The Range Rover crossed the center multi-purpose lane and the right front corner of the Range Rover struck the left rear corner of the stationary passenger car.”

UHP stated that the Range Rover hit the left rear corner of the car, then continued onto the eastbound travel lanes of SR-40 and hit the Dodge truck trailer.

“The Range Rover continued to the right and its left front impacted the left front of the Subaru Legacy,” UHP said.

The male driver of the Subaru had to be extricated from the vehicle, which according to UHP, took almost one hour.

The driver of the Subaru was taken to the hospital via medical helicopter in extremely critical condition.

“Troopers are continuing to investigate the cause of the crash,” UHP said.
