TOOELE, Utah — One person died and two others were seriously injured Tuesday night following a two-car crash in Tooele.
The incident happened at 1220 S. Main Street.
Sgt. Nick Cutler with the Tooele Police Department said a black 2018 Nissan Ultima was traveling northbound on state Route 36, which turns into Main Street in Tooele, when it crossed the center line and into oncoming traffic. The vehicle — which had its headlights turned off — then collided with a 2020 Hyundai Elantra, which was being driven by a 20-year-old woman.
The driver of the Nissan, identified as a 35-year-old man, died from his injuries on scene, despite being provided medical care.
Cutler said the 20-year-old woman and a juvenile passenger in the Hyundai were flown in a medical helicopter to Salt Lake City hospitals. A description of their injuries was not immediately available.
