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.
