South Summit woman injured in morning crash

A 73-year-old woman suffered minor injuries Tuesday in a traffic crash that involved two vehicles on S.R. 32 near Kamas at about 7 a.m., authorities say.

The Park Record doesn’t usually name juveniles who could face potential charges.

At the time of the crash the South Summit boy was attempting to turn right onto southbound S.R. 32 to travel toward Kamas from Upper Loop Road, Nigbur said.

"It appeared the pickup truck t-boned the side of the car," said Terry Davis, a spokeswoman for South Summit Ambulance.

The drivers were wearing their seat belts and investigators don’t believe alcohol or drugs were factors in the crash, Nigbur said.

"He was shook up obviously," Davis said about the driver of the truck.

He was treated and released at the scene of the crash, she said, adding that the woman was transported in an ambulance for treatment at a hospital in Heber.
