Accident Near Soldier Summit Leaves Two in Hospital


An early morning accident on Highway 6 sent two to the hospital on Sunday.

According to authorities, on Sunday morning around 7:45 a.m., a red Toyota pickup was traveling eastbound in the canyon on SR-6. Near milepost 210, Soldier Summit, the driver was conducting speeds that were too fast for the snowy road, the UHP reported. The driver lost control, causing the pickup to cross the center line and strike a semi that was traveling westbound.

This impact spun the Toyota and pushed it toward the road’s edge. According to authorities, the driver, a female, was ejected during the collision. The passenger, who was a male, was transported via helicopter to UVRMC while the driver was transported by an ambulance. It is believed by troopers that neither were wearing their seat belts.
