CORINNE, Utah — Two drivers were injured during an early morning accident in Box Elder County on Wednesday.

Utah Highway Patrol officials said a Toyota Corolla was heading eastbound on State Route 13 just before 6:30 a.m. when it veered into the opposite lane of traffic and crashed head-on into a Ford Mustang at 2800 West.

The 34-year-old female driver of the Toyota was airlifted to the hospital in critical condition. The other driver was also transported with very serious injuries, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.

Both drivers were from Brigham City.

Due to the accident, the road was closed in both directions for approximately two hours while the crash was being investigated.
