A West Jordan trucker remained in critical condition Thursday, the day after he was injured in a fiery collision with another semi-trailer rig in Echo Canyon near the Utah-Wyoming border.
Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Todd Royce said the condition of 44-year-old Roger Davidson, who was flown from the Interstate 80 crash by helicopter to University Hospital in Salt Lake City, was unchanged.
The crash occurred about 5 a.m. Wednesday when one westbound semi rear-ended the other, which had partially pulled over to the side of the road with a mechanical problem.
The accident — at milepost 182, about 15 miles west of the Wyoming state line — resulted in closure of the westbound lanes of the freeway to the state line well into Wednesday night.
