2 teens injured in auto rollover near Vernon

Two teenage boys were injured in a single-vehicle rollover accident south of Vernon Monday evening, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.

A Land Rover was traveling northbound on state Route 36 around 7:30 p.m. when it went off the road to the right, according to UHP. When the vehicle traveled back to the left, it left the roadway and overturned.

The road was closed for 10 to 15 minutes so two medical helicopters could land at the accident scene, according to UHP. The occupants of the Land Rover, a 16-year-old boy and 15-year-old boy, were flown from the scene. 

One of the boys was in serious condition and the other was in critical condition, with possible life-threatening injuries, UHP said. Both occupants were wearing seat belts. 

The reason for the crash is still under investigation, UHP said.
