GARLAND, Utah — A man was transported by air ambulance while three others were transported by ground ambulance following a near head-on collision in Box Elder County.

Corporal Colton Freckleton with the Utah Highway Patrol said the crash happened Saturday morning near mile marker 94 on SR-30.

An 18-year-old male was driving a pickup truck when he became fatigued and ran off the road through the median.

Freckleton said the teen hit a 50-year-old male who was driving a suburban in the opposite direction. The crash was described as an “off-set head on” collision.

Both vehicles had an additional occupant inside.

Crews from Garland, Fielding and Tremonton Fire were on scene following the crash.

Officials said SR-30 was shutdown for a period of time so a LifeFlight helicopter could land.

The 50-year-old was transported by air ambulance in critical condition, but with non life-threatening injuries.

The three others were transported by ground ambulance. Their conditions were not released.

The crash is under investigation.

Freckleton said charges will likely be filed.
