EDEN -- Seven people went to the hospital after a head-on crash Wednesday evening.
A family of five was driving west on 2200 North in a Chevrolet sedan when the driver failed to yield where the road merges into Highway 158 and crashed head-on with an eastbound Ford Expedition shortly before 6 p.m., said Weber County Sheriff's Detective Josh Gard.
The crash smashed in the front of the light-blue sedan and spun it around until it faced east on Highway 158. The crash also sent the white Ford Expedition off the road, with damage to the right side of its front end and on the passenger side of the vehicle.
The woman who was driving the Ford Expedition and a female passenger were taken to McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden with minor to moderate injuries. The mother and father and their three sons, who were in the back seat of the sedan, were taken to McKay-Dee with minor to moderate injuries as well.
Though the injuries to the people in the sedan were more serious, "everyone's going to be OK," Gard said.
Weber Fire District Capt. Kevin Sheridan said he has responded to two head-on crashes at the same spot before, and the minor injuries from this one were fortunate.
The driver of the sedan was cited for failure to yield. There is a yield sign facing westbound traffic at the intersection of 2200 North and Highway 158.
The names of the people involved were not immediately available, though the family in the sedan is from Clinton and the people in the Expedition are from Farr West.
