WEBER COUNTY, Utah (ABC4 News) – Six people were injured in a head-on collision after a teen lost control of the car he was driving along the North Ogden divide Monday afternoon.
Weber County Sheriff’s Deputies said a 16-year-old male driving a Subaru Forester was traveling west down the divide when he lost control going around a sharp corner. The vehicle hit a Subaru sedan traveling east up the divide head-on. The impact sent the sedan off the side of the road and down a 40-foot embankment and into a tree.
The Forester rolled and stopped in the middle of the roadway.
Deputies said the driver of the Forester and three 15-year-old female passengers all suffered minor injuries and two of the females were transported to the hospital.
The 47-year-old female driver of the sedan and her 17-year-old son received injuries and were also taken by ambulance to the hospital. Everyone is expected to make a full recovery.
Investigators determined the male driver of the Forester was traveling too fast for the curve when he lost control. He was cited for reckless driving involving an accident.
The Weber County Sheriff’s Office wants to remind all drivers that travel along the North Ogden divide and in the Ogden Canyon to obey the speed limits and advisory speeds. Both roadways contain numerous areas with limited shoulders and can be very dangerous.
