PROVO — A crash Saturday night on Interstate 15 in Provo sent a 4-year-old girl to the hospital in serious condition, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.

The UHP said the crash was a result of a Subaru WRX racing with a red Dodge Charger on southbound I-15 near milepost 265. The driver of the Subaru lost control of his vehicle, struck the right concrete barrier and ricocheted into the left barrier. The occupants of the vehicle were all transported to the hospital, including the girl, who was unrestrained.

The 4-year-old girl was seriously injured but was in stable condition as of Monday morning.

State troopers said the man who was driving the Subaru was arrested on outstanding warrants and was booked into the Utah County Jail. They said he is not related to the girl and her mother’s boyfriend.

Troopers said witnesses helped locate and identify the driver of the Charger. Both drivers will likely face charges, and troopers said they will consult with the Utah County Attorney’s Office for any potential charges against the girl’s mother.
