Four teenagers were injured, one critically, in a Summit County ATV crash on Friday.

The four teens were riding an ATV west on Weber Canyon Road, east of Oakley, on Friday afternoon when a truck came up behind them, said Summit County sheriff's Sgt. Ron Bridge.

The truck tried to pass them near 6500 East as the ATV slowed down, but the ATV turned left in front of the truck, Bridge said.

The girl who was critically injured was flown in a medical helicopter to a Wasatch Front hospital. The other three teens suffered only minor injuries. All four teens had been wearing helmets, Bridge said.

The crash is still under investigation. Deputies had not received any update as to the girl's condition on Monday.
