The victim, who was the driver, was later was transported to Utah Valley Regional Medical Center for what was expected to be a long recovery from extensive injuries.

Three passengers in the car escaped with minor injuries, Royce said.

The accident occurred during a snowstorm that hit higher elevations along the Wasatch Front on Wednesday night. Poor weather conditions prevented the injured man from being air-lifted from the scene.
