TOOELE — Three people, including a pregnant woman and her infant child, were ejected from a vehicle that police say rolled after being hit by a second car Tuesday.

The accident happened about 12:50 p.m. near state Route 112 and Utah Avenue. A four-door Buick on Industrial Loop Road ran a stop sign and hit the back of a Suburban that was westbound on state Route 112, said Tooele Police Lt. Adrian Day.

The Buick was traveling an estimated 60 mph when it hit the second vehicle, Day said.

The impact caused the Suburban to go off the road and roll, he said. A man, pregnant woman and infant girl all were ejected from the vehicle. All three were transported to area hospitals. Their conditions were not immediately known Tuesday afternoon.

The man in the Buick was not injured. Day said the man was cited for failing to stop at a stop sign. There were no preliminary indications that the man was driving under the influence, he said.

Additional information will be posted as it becomes available.
