THISTLE JUNCTION -- A Roy couple were injured in a rollover crash Saturday afternoon in Spanish Fork Canyon.
The husband and wife, who were not immediately identified, were traveling east on U.S. Highway 6 in a red pick-up truck pulling a 28- to 30-foot camp trailert. But the trailer started whipping back and forth, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.
At about milepost 187 at 1 p.m., the wife lost control of the truck and went off the right side of the road. The truck and trailer rolled until coming to rest 30 to 40 feet from the highway.
The trailer was on its roof and the cab of the truck was crushed around the husband.
Passing drivers called for help. Emergency medical technicians tended to the couple until emergency responders from Spanish Fork and UHP arrived.
"The man was more seriously injured than his wife," according to a UHP news release. Both were taken to Mountain View Hospital in Payson. The woman had minor injuries and was released within two hours, but her husband was taken to Utah Valley Regional Medical Center.
He is expected to survive, said Joe Doughtery, UHP spokesman.
"It was a pretty traumatic day for them," he said.
Both were wearing seatbelts.
UHP is still investigating what caused the crash.
