EDEN -- A 30-year-old man was in critical condition Friday night after being ejected in an off-road vehicle accident.

Weber County Sheriff's Cpl. Mark Horton said that around 7:30 p.m., the man and a 26-year-old man were driving their side-by-side vehicle, known also as a UTV, near the Monte Cristo Campground.

The two men were unable to handle a turn on a dirt road and crashed, ejecting both from the UTV.

Neither man was wearing a seat belt or helmet, Horton said.

Both were transported by helicopter to the hospital in critical condition, though the 26-year-old's condition was later upgraded to stable.

Speed is believed to have played a factor in the crash, Horton said.

The names of those involved were not released.
