Semi, SUV collide in Layton; two injured
First Published Sep 25 2012 11:07 pm • Last Updated Sep 25 2012 11:07 pm

Two people were hospitalized after a semitrailer truck and an SUV collided Tuesday in Layton.

A teenage boy was driving an SUV with a utility trailer south on U.S. Highway 89 about 7:30 p.m. when he made a left turn onto Cherry Lane, said Layton police Sgt. Jeff Roderick. He apparently turned in front of a semitrailer truck, which broadsided the SUV and tipped over.

The driver of the SUV was in and out of consciousness when responders arrived; he was taken to an Ogden hospital, where he was expected to survive. A passenger’s leg was pinned inside the semitrailer truck and suffered cuts; the passenger also was expected to survive, Roderick said.

The driver of the semi was able to climb out of the wreckage without injury, Roderick said.

The crash closed Highway 89 for about an hour and a half; lanes were expected to remain closed until late into the evening as crews transferred the truck’s cargo to other vehicles. The truck was carrying meat, Roderick said.
