Six people suffered injuries which include five Utah State football players and one other female passenger in a car crash. The injuries as the result of a car crash involving a semi-trailer and a SUV, Fox 13 in Utah is reporting.

The injuries to these six people are being classified as "most of those involved are in critical condition," and were air lifted to a local hospital. There is no report at this time if there were any other injuries to who was in the semi-trailer.

Lt. Cox of the Utah Highway Patrol said the accident occurred on Highway 142 when the SUV stopped at an intersection on  Highway 23, but initial reports says the driver thought the intersection was a four-way stop. In fact, this was a two-way stop and when the SUV proceeded through their stop sign the semi-trailer t-boned the car carrying those from Utah State.

The names have not been released nor is it known at this point who was driving the SUV.

We will provide more details once they become available.

Via HJ news and Amy Macaventia:

Two individuals were able to get out of the vehicles, but the other four required extrication. A Life Flight helicopter was also called to the area. One person was transported by air to an Ogden area hospital and three more were taken by ambulance to Logan Regional Hospital.

One of the three transported to Logan Regional hospital was the female victim. Although reports are still varying it seems likely the SUV was carrying four USU football players and one female.
