WEST VALLEY CITY — Seven people were injured, one critically, in a crash in West Valley City Friday evening, police said.

About 5:50 p.m., police received calls from other drivers who witnessed the crash in the intersection of 6200 South and Mountain View Corridor, West Valley Police Lt. Steve Burke said.

A white car with six people inside had been driving east on 6200 South when it ran a red light and collided with a northbound car on Mountain View Corridor, Burke said.

The most serious injuries were among those in the white car, according to Burke. Two people were flown to hospitals, one of whom was listed in critical condition with a head injury, and three were transported by ambulance in various conditions.

All of the people in the white car were between the ages of 14 and 18, Burke said. Four people had been in the back seat, with one laying across the others as there weren’t enough seat belts.

Both vehicles sustained “very serious impact” in the crash, according to the lieutenant.

The driver of the other car, a pregnant woman, had minor injuries and was taken to a hospital for evaluation, Burke said, adding that there was no indication the unborn baby was harmed during the crash.

Impairment was not suspected in the crash, he said.
