4 Richfield High Students Hospitalized After Crash On Popular Dirt Road
RICHFIELD, Utah – Officials with the Utah Highway Patrol are investigating a crash in central Utah involving five students from Richfield High School.
Troopers said the student driver was traveling at a high rate of speed and failed to negotiate a curve on the “CC Road” west of Richfield just after noon on Tuesday.
The silver Jeep Cherokee went off the right side of the road and down into a deep ravine.
The dirt road is a popular destination for teenagers during their lunch break, according to troopers.
Four of the five students were flown by helicopter from Richfield to the Salt Lake Valley in critical condition.
Only two students were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
