A Morgan girl remained in critical condition Tuesday, the day after the car she was driving collided with a Utah Transit Authority bus. The accident also injured her three teenage passengers.
All of the passengers were from Morgan. One was in serious condition Tuesday, while two others were treated and released after the accident, which occurred at 4:54 p.m. Monday at the intersection of Main Street and Burkes Lane.The driver of the car apparently pulled in front of a UTA bus, said Farmington Police Chief Val Morton.
Craig Rasmussen, UTA spokesman, said the bus had the right of way, since the car appeared to be attempting a left-hand turn onto Main Street. No injuries were reported on the bus, which was traveling on a commuter route from Salt Lake City to Ogden.
The driver, Jennifer Fry, 16, and front-seat passenger Sarah Hopkin, also 16, were transported by medical helicopter to University Hospital. The back-seat passengers, Michelle Benzley, 15, and Tiffany Judy, 16, were treated and released from Bountiful's Lakeview Hospital, said a nursing supervisor.
Fry remained in critical condition Tuesday with head injuries and a pelvic fracture. Hopkin, who also suffered head injuries, had a facial fracture and was in serious condition, said a nursing supervisor.
Farmington police and UTA are both investigating the cause of the accident.
