West Jordan Public Information Officer Jennifer Worthen said they were called to a crash around 11 p.m. at 6800 South 5600 West.

Witnesses said two vehicles were traveling at a high rate of speed, believed to have been racing, when the driver of one of the cars lost control and struck a power box.

The male driver was ejected and suffered critical injuries. A 17-year-old female passenger was also seriously injured. Both were taken to Intermountain Medical Center by ambulance.
