A man was in critical but improved condition Friday, the day after his pickup truck careened off a car and crashed into the back yard of a home in Herriman.

Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal said alcohol was believed a factor when the 41-year-old pickup driver clipped the rear end of a car stopped at 13772 South and 5600 West about 8:30 p.m. Thursday. The pickup then careened through a fence, into the back yard and then crashed into a second fence before coming to a stop.

The driver of the pickup was flown by helicopter to Intermountain Medical Center, while the female driver of the car was treated at the scene for minor injuries and released.

The accident remained under investigation Friday.
