SUNDANCE, Utah, Nov. 30, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — Multiple people were injured in a head-on collision on State Route 189 Friday afternoon in Provo Canyon.

The crash occurred at 4:14 p.m. near the State Route 92 turnoff, Utah Highway Patrol said in a news release.

The driver of a westbound pick-up truck lost control of the vehicle on the snowy road and crossed into eastbound traffic, striking a passenger car head on.

UHP said the female driver of the passenger car suffered critical, but non-life-threatening injuries. Officials at first said two juvenile passengers in the car had minor injuries, and later amended that to three children, all of whom were transported with non-life-threatening injuries.
