OGDEN, Utah — Two people were injured, one critically, after a car careened of a mountain road in Ogden on Thursday.
The Weber County Sheriff's Office said they received at 9:30 p.m. of a call of a reckless driver in North Ogden Canyon. While en route to the location, deputies were notified of a single vehicle accident in the same area.
Officials said the driver of the vehicle hit a wall and traveled across both lanes of traffic before crashing 100 feet down the side of the canyon.
A 20-year-old female passenger was extricated from the vehicle and transported to the hospital via helicopter in critical condition, while the 19-year-old male driver suffered only minor injuries.
Witnesses said the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed and deputies are investigating whether alcohol was a factor in the crash.
