HURRICANE, Utah — Multiple teens were ejected from a truck during a rollover crash in Hurricane on Wednesday.

Four of the teens were hospitalized after the GMC pickup truck they were in rolled down an embankment on SR-7 near Sand Hollow Reservoir at about 6:15 p.m.

The Utah Highway Patrol said three passengers were ejected from the vehicle due to not wearing seat belts. Only the driver, who was wearing a seat belt, remained in the truck during the crash.
