SARDINE SUMMIT -- A woman suffered a serious head injury Wednesday when her car rolled on U.S. 91.
The 19-year-old woman, who was not immediately identified, was driving south around 4:35 p.m. when she tried to pass two trucks near Mile Marker 9, said Utah Highway Patrol Cpl. Todd Johnson.
The trucks were traveling below the speed limit, so she tried passing them on the left in her Mitsubishi Lancer, he said.
"She began to pass the trucks, but (the rear one) changed lanes into her lane, forcing her to go left," Johnson said.
She made a hard left toward the median to avoid the truck and lost control of her car, causing her to make a hard right and roll, landing on her wheels, Johnson said.
Emergency responders were on scene within a few minutes. The driver's side of the Mitsubishi was smashed.
UHP closed the right lane as firefighters extricated the woman from her car. She was taken to Brigham City Community Hospital, then flown to an Ogden-area hospital.
Johnson said the woman had been wearing her seat belt and no citations had been issued, though the investigation continues.
