A man died Sunday morning after a crash in Hooper that also injured four others.

A Cadillac with a family of four was traveling south on 5900 West, when it crashed nearly head-on with a Toyota Prius near 5900 South, according to the Weber County Sheriff's Office. The two collided about 1:30 a.m.

A backseat passenger in the Cadillac — 29-year-old Nicholas James Morse, of West Point — died at the hospital several hours later.

After the two cars crashed, the Prius spun out of control and its 17-year-old driver, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown out of a side window, the sheriff's office said in a news release. The teen, who lives in Riverdale, was taken to Ogden Regional Medical Center and was in critical condition with severe head trauma.

The Cadillac, meanwhile, went off the road and crashed into a ditch. Weber Fire District firefighters cut the four people out of the car. Morse was taken to McKay Dee Hospital in critical condition, where he later died, according to the news release.

The other Cadillac passengers — a 53-year-old woman, a 35-year-old woman and a 36-year-old man — suffered a variety of injuries and were taken to local hospitals. They and Morse are family members from West Point who were apparently heading home at the time of the crash.

"The accident is still under investigation, as deputies try to determine a cause and who may have been in violation of the law," the statement said. "As standard procedure, a voluntary blood draw was requested of both drivers to rule out possible impairment."
