CARBON COUNTY, Utah, Aug. 8,. 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — New details have been released after a Carbon County SUV rollover that sent eight teens to hospitals — two in critical condition — on Wednesday night.

The Carbon County Sheriff’s Office says the victims, all county residents, were in a Chevrolet when it rolled near Pinnacle Peak, west of Price.

“When law enforcement and first responders arrived on scene the vehicle, a Chevy Tahoe was engulfed in flames due to expelled fuel during the roll. Fire crews were able to put the blaze out while ambulance personnel attended to the victims.

“Of the eight youth in the vehicle, all were transported by ambulance or the individual’s parents to Castleview Hospital. At Castleview Hospital, six of the youth were treated and released and two were transferred to another facility. Due to patient confidentiality, we cannot provide any additional information.”

Sheriff Jeff Wood told Gephardt Daily on Wednesday night that the accident happened just after 8 p.m. on a dirt road called Pinnacle Peak Road. He estimated the age of all in the vehicle as being between 16 and 18. The two critically injured patients were flown to a hospital in the Salt Lake City area, Wood said.

“The cause of the accident is still being determined, no citations were issued. Drugs and alcohol were not involved in this incident,” the CCSO statement says. “First responders from Carbon County Sheriff’s Office, Price Fire, Utah Highway Patrol, and Carbon County Ambulance responded to this scene.

“The Sheriff’s Office would like to take this opportunity to remind the public when incidents happen and agency response is needed please stay clear of the road and access to the scene. While we know that the public means well, it can hinder the response if access is limited.”
