The single-vehicle accident occurred at about 2:25 p.m. on Interstate 15 several miles north of Nephi. Utah Highway Patrol authorities said the van was traveling north and went off the left shoulder, and over-corrected. When the van, driven by a 56-year-old man, went back towards the right side of the roadway, the vehicle hit an embankment and rolled.

Authorities say only the driver and the front passenger — a 54-year-old woman — were wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident. An 18-year-old woman and a 14-year-old boy were transported to a local hospital in Nephi, along with the 54-year-old woman. The driver was transported to Central Valley Medical Center.

The 11-year-old girl, along with a 9-year-old boy, were flown to a hospital in Salt Lake City.

Everyone in the vehicle is from Idaho Falls, according to UHP.

Authorities did not have information about the severity of the injuries of the passengers as of 7 p.m. Thursday.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
