Two in critical condition after crash that closed Provo Canyon

PROVO, Utah — Two people were seriously injured in a crash on US Highway 189 near Vivian Park in Provo Canyon.

Officials with the Utah Highway Patrol said a Toyota Camry was turning left from the park onto US 189 Sunday evening when it pulled out in front of a Nissan Rogue traveling eastbound.

The front of the Rogue hit the driver’s side of the Camry, according to state troopers.

The male driver of the Camry and female driver of the Rogue were both hospitalized in serious condition. State troopers said their conditions were later downgraded to critical.

A third vehicle, a Ford Escape, was struck by debris from the crash; the Escape’s driver was not injured.

Troopers said there was heavy rain in the area at the time of the crash and both directions of US 189 were closed for investigation and documentation.

Both directions reopened later Sunday night.
