FARR WEST -- Three people were injured when two vehicles collided Wednesday morning in Farr West.

The accident happened about 9:40 a.m. at the Interstate 15 Exit 351 off-ramp and State Road 126, said Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Dave McKay.

A 2001 Ford Focus, driven by a 17-year-old male, was exiting northbound from the off-ramp and turning west on State Road 126, McKay said.

A 1991 Chevrolet pickup truck was traveling east on SR 126. The Focus turned in front of the truck and was struck by the truck, McKay said.

The 17-year-old driver and his 56-year-old mother, who was a passenger, were in serious condition and taken by ambulance to Ogden Regional Medical Center, McKay said. They are from Kaysville and were not identified.

The 44-year-old male driver of the pickup, a resident of Hyrum who was not identified, sustained minor injuries and was treated and released at the scene.

Traffic near the crash scene, including from the off-ramp, was blocked by the Weber County Sheriff's Office for about 45 minutes.

The accident remains under investigation. No charges have been filed.
