RIVERTON, Utah — Southbound Bangerter Highway closed at 11800 South Friday after four people were injured in a 5-vehicle crash.

According to Ken Hansen with the Unified Police Department, a woman in her late 40’s crashed into the back of a vehicle at Bangerter and 12600 South while traveling at 60 MPH.

Three people were taken to the hospital in serious condition and one person was taken to the hospital in critical condition following the accident. It was unclear whether the woman who hit the back of a vehicle was injured.

Hansen said that police were receiving calls of a reckless driver on Bangerter and 3100 South. It was unknown if those calls were related to the accident.
