Three teens on a lunch break from Springville High School lost control and rolled their SUV in Hobble Creek Canyon. At least one ejected and has broken leg.
*** PRESS RELEASE *** March 6, 2019: Today at about 1120 AM Deputies with the Utah County Sheriff's Office responded to a caller who reported she was in a crash in Hobble Creek Canyon. She was not certain of her location, but a Deputy found the crash a short distance into Hobble Creek Canyon, near Springville. Three teenage girls were on lunch break from Springville High School and were driving in Hobble Creek Canyon. It was raining and the driver lost control causing the Chevrolet Trailblazer to go off the road and roll. Two of the girls were not wearing seatbelts. One of them was ejected. The other may also have been ejected but she was uncertain because she only remembers waking up outside the car, not knowing how she got out of the car. The one who was ejected sustained a broken lower leg. The driver is the only one who was wearing a seatbelt. All three were taken to Utah Valley Hospital in Provo and are expected to recover fully. Drug or alcohol use are not suspected in this crash.
A reminder to be extra cautious during adverse weather, including rain or snow. Drive slowly to reduce the likelihood of losing control. This crash could easily have been much worse.
