WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah -- A man was seriously injured in a crash, during which a piece of plywood smashed through a windshield.

Sgt. Tyler Longman, West Valley City Police, said the crash occurred near 4950 West and 3100 South around 9 p.m. Thursday.

The crash involved two vehicles and a portion of a nearby fence was destroyed.

The driver of one vehicle was taken to a hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries. There were no other injuries.
