Motorcyclist seriously injured in accident; Provo Canyon reopened
OREM, Utah – Provo Canyon was closed Sunday night as rescue workers responded to a motorcycle accident with life-threatening injuries.
The Utah Highway Patrol initially reported a medical helicopter was on its way to the crime scene just before 7 p.m., but later told FOX 13 that it was canceled and the driver was taken to a local hospital in an ambulance.
The driver is in critical condition. It is not yet known whether other vehicles were involved.
Westbound traffic was dammed more than eight kilometers east of the accident site on US Highway 189 near Springdell and about three kilometers east of the mouth of the canyon.
Both directions were closed due to the emergency procedures and the cleanup, but they were both back around 8 p.m.
