EAGLE MOUNTAIN, Utah — A 13-year-old boy is in critical condition after a scooter crash in Eagle Mountain Wednesday afternoon.

Sgt. Spencer Cannon with the Utah County Sheriff's Office said a call came in just before 4 p.m. reporting an auto-pedestrian accident near North Horizon Drive and North Hummer Drive.

Initial information shows a 13-year-old male on a scooter may have gone through a stop sign and hit the left front side of a car.

The driver of the car was a 19-year-old and was cooperative with officers at the time of the incident.

The 13-year-old was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Speed and other concerns do not appear to be factors in the incident.

Sgt. Cannon reports deputies are investigating the incident and cause of the crash.
