Firefighter, driver hurt in Cache Co. multi-vehicle crash

CACHE COUNTY, UT – Wet roads and fog could have contributed to a Monday morning crash with injuries. 

The multi-vehicle collision happened around 9 a.m. at U.S. Highway 91 and SR 61, HJ News reported. 

A driver of a Chevy Suburban was traveling south and hit a driver of a Toyota Corolla, making a left turn. Another driver of a second Toyota Corolla tried to avoid the crash but ended up colliding with the Chevy in a side-swipe fashion. 

Shortly after, a firefighter was responding to the scene of the crash with the Corollas and the Chevy. A driver of a Ford F-350 hit the firefighter. As a result, the firefighter sustained non-life-threatening injuries. 

The driver of the second Toyota Corolla was unharmed; however, the driver of the initial Corolla was hospitalized for unspecified injuries. 

It is unclear if the Chevy driver was hurt.
