WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah, Nov. 10, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — A two-vehicle crash Sunday afternoon sent three people to the hospital — one with critical injuries — and shut down Mountain View Corridor for about four hours while the incident was being investigated.

West Valley City Police Lt. Shane Matheson said the crash occurred at about 2:30 p.m., when a vehicle that was eastbound on 6200 South ran a red light and struck a vehicle that was northbound, on a green light, on Mountain View Corridor.

The man and woman who were in the car that was hit were transported to the hospital in serious condition, Matheson said.

The male driver of the car that ran the light sustained skull and neck fractures and was transported to the hospital in critical condition.

On Sunday night, Matheson said no information was available regarding the current condition of any of the parties involved.

The major accident investigation team was called in because of the severity of the crash, he said, and Mountain View Corridor was closed from 6200 South to 7800 South for about four hours.

Matheson had no information as to whether alcohol was a factor in the crash, but he said investigators would have blood drawn from both drivers for testing as a matter of protocol.
