At least one person was critically injured when a car rolled on Interstate 80 just east of Wendover.

Utah Highway Patrol Cpl. Todd Johnson said the 11:50 a.m. Thursday crash involved one vehicle. As it rolled about 13 miles east of Wendover, one person was ejected.

The silver Honda Civic was traveling eastbound when it went off the left side of the road for an unknown reason. The driver over-corrected to the right, sending the vehicle off the right side of the road. The car rolled several times and ejected the 21-year-old driver, who was the only person in the vehicle. UHP said the man was not wearing a seatbelt.

The victim was taken by medical helicopter to University Hospital in Salt Lake City.
