FARR WEST -- Five passengers walked away in good condition Friday after a serious crash with a semitrailer.

Weber County Sheriff's Sgt. Mike Streker said a blue Mazda was driving west on 2700 North around 7:25 p.m. when it ran a red light and hit the semitrailer heading south on 2000 West. The front of the car hit near the cab of the truck first, then the car spun, smashing its back on the truck.

Two young boys riding in the Mazda were taken to the hospital with minor injuries, Streker said. Another boy and two other adult females were also in the car but were unhurt. All five passengers were wearing seat belts.

The driver of the truck was uninjured.

It was unclear if the driver of the Mazda would be cited for running the red light.

Streker said it was fortunate there were no serious injuries, considering the damage to the Mazda. Much of the front of the car had been torn off, and the back end was smashed in.

"You come out and look at the debris, it's like, 'Oh wow,' " Streker said. "Luckily, nothing was life-threatening."
