    The Utah Highway Patrol says one person is in critical condition Thursday afternoon following a "severe" crash on Interstate 15 in Juab County.

    A driver traveling northbound on the interstate near mile marker 230 reportedly lost control of their Dodge Dakota truck and crossed into the southbound lanes, where it struck a Ford Focus.

    "This caused extensive damage to both vehicles," UHP said in a press release.

    The male driver of the Ford was trapped in the vehicle. UHP said it took "an extended time" to get him out. UHP said he sustained "numerous injuries," including internal bleeding.

    He was taken to Central Valley Medical Center and then to Utah Valley Hospital, where he was in critical condition.

    The occupants of the Dodge — a woman and her two children — sustained minor injuries or were uninjured, UHP said.

    The crash broke the arm of the female passenger in the Ford. A child in the backseat sustained a collapsed lung. Both were transported to the hospital, UHP said.

    All persons involved in the crash were wearing seat belts or were in car seats, UHP said.
