Monday March 1, 2021

        On February 27, 2021 at approximately at 2104 hours a gray Dodge Ram 2500 was traveling southbound on SR 36 in the area of mile marker 60.  The Dodge was traveling too fast for conditions and lost control to the left and hopped the concrete divider facing eastbound across both northbound lanes.  A Blue Ford F-150 was traveling northbound in the same area and T-boned the Dodge Ram.  Both vehicles ended up on the right shoulder in the weeds.  The Driver of the Dodge Ram was an 18 year old male who was a single occupant.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.  The Ford F-150 had a family of 5 with two adults and three children.  The oldest child was 14 years old.  The driver was a male (Dad) who was extricated and transported in critical condition by a ground ambulance since an air ambulance was unable to fly in the weather conditions.  The Adult Female (Mom) was transported by ground also in critical condition to a local area hospital.  One of the juveniles was transported by ground also in critical condition to a local area hospital.  Northbound SR 36 was closed for two hours before opening lane one.  Lane two was closed until 0135 hours. All three that were transported to a local area hospital were later flown to hospitals on the Wasatch Front.

The deceased driver of the Dodge Ram is Treyton Ellis, age 18, of Tooele.
