BOX ELDER COUNTY, Utah, May 14, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — A 21-year-old Utah State University football player is in critical condition after the vehicle he was driving drifted into a construction zone on I-15 near Willard and struck a number of large wooden spools.

A news release from Utah Highway Patrol said the vehicle driven by Brady Holt was northbound on I-15 near mile marker 357, in Box Elder County, Saturday at approximately 12:50 p.m.

The news release continued: “The driver over-corrected and slid across the highway to the left and into the center median, where the vehicle rolled. The driver was not wearing his seat belt and was ejected as the vehicle rolled.”

A medical helicopter was dispatched to the scene and the driver was transported via helicopter to Ogden Regional Hospital. He remains in extremely critical condition.

A post Monday on the Brady’s Update Group Facebook page said Holt is breathing on his own, but is not awake.

“We did see some amazing things last night, we are still asking for that miracle,” the post reads.

Utah State University sent out their own post Monday morning.
