LAYTON -- Two people were injured when a sport utility vehicle collided with a semitrailer Tuesday night near the intersection of U.S. 89 and Cherry Lane.
The accident was reported at 7:34 p.m., Layton Police Sgt. Jeff Roderick said, and it was still under investigation Wednesday.
A Ford SUV was heading south, preparing to make a left turn at Cherry Lane, and the semi was traveling north on U.S. 89. The SUV, which was towing a small utility trailer, turned in front of the semi, causing a collision, Roderick said.
The semi went onto its side and traveled through a portion of a Sinclair convenience store parking lot, taking out a sign as well as phone and Internet cables, Roderick said. The semi, which was carrying packaged meat, and the SUV sustained major damage.
A man driving the semi was not hurt and was able to climb out of the vehicle, but his passenger's leg was trapped. The male passenger was able to crawl out once the cab was lifted with equipment by emergency personnel.
The passenger was taken by ambulance to an area hospital.
The teenage male driver of the SUV, who was traveling alone, received an arm injury and was also transported by ambulance to a hospital.
The names of those involved in the crash were not available late Tuesday night. Charges are pending in connection with the crash.
Some diesel fuel from the semi leaked into soil and was cleaned up late Tuesday night.
Traffic north and south on U.S. 89 was diverted for about 90 minutes. Meat from the semi was transferred to another refrigerated vehicle.
