A head-on collision in Johnson’s Pass closed the highway early Monday morning.
At about 4:10 a.m., a car heading east and a car heading west on SR-199 collided in a glancing head-on crash, said Lt. Corey Nye of the Utah Highway Patrol.
Both drivers were critically injured, he said, but neither car was carrying a passenger. One of the injured drivers was from Tooele County, while the other lived in Utah County, he said.
They were flown to Salt Lake hospitals where they remained in critical condition, Nye said.
The crash was still under investigation as of press time Tuesday.
Nye said Johnson’s Pass was closed for roughly two and a half hours while crews attended to the scene.
