Taylorsville • A teenage driver flipped his truck during a street race Wednesday near Taylorsville High School, injuring himself and a passenger who was riding in the truck's bed.
The accident happened about 2 p.m. when a small brown Mazda truck rolled over in a parking lot adjacent to the high school. Unified Police Department Lt. Justin Hoyal said the driver and passenger, both 16-year-old boys, were transported via ambulance to Intermountain Medical Center. They both had serious injuries, though Hoyal said those injuries were not life-threatening.
Two other teenagers were riding in the bed of the truck. Hoyal said they either jumped or fell out before the accident and escaped major injuries. A passenger sitting inside the truck also walked away without suffering serious harm.
