Boy, 14, critically injured after ATV-pickup truck crash in Echo

SUMMIT COUNTY, UT – A 14-year-old boy was airlifted to a hospital after a crash occurred on Echo Road before 6 p.m. Thursday. 

According to Town Lift Park City News, two boys were operating four-wheelers and then put them in park, where one could be seen in the travel lane and on the shoulder. 

One of the vehicles turned the lights off. As a result, a pickup truck driver did not see one of the four-wheelers and crashed into that vehicle and the 14-year-old boy. 

The driver of the pickup truck and the other boy was unharmed. However, the four-wheeler driver sustained non-life-threatening injuries, and the 14-year-old was taken to a children’s hospital for critical injuries.
