WENDOVER — Five people were hurt, two critically, when two SUVs collided outside of Wendover Sunday.
Just after 3 p.m., a couple from California had just entered eastbound I-80 from a rest stop and tried to go across several lanes of traffic to get to the median to do a U-turn to head west, according to the Utah Highway Patrol. The vehicle, however, cut off an oncoming SUV that smashed into them, said Utah Department of Public Safety spokesman Joe Dougherty.
A 69-year-old woman from one SUV and a 37-year-old man from the other were flown to University Hospital by medical helicopters. The woman was flown as a precaution and the man was in serious condition, Dougherty said. A 70-year-old man in one vehicle and another man, 34, and woman, 59, in the other vehicle were taken by ambulances to the same hospital. Their conditions were not immediately available.
The 69-year-old woman in the first SUV was cited for failure to yield, Dougherty said.
