LOGAN — A 3-year-old girl was seriously injured after an accident on SR-89/91 Saturday afternoon.

According to the Utah Highway Patrol, the accident primarily involved a Toyota Camry, driven by a 70-year-old woman and carrying her daughter and two grand children aged 3 and 5, and a Ford Expedition driven by a 17-year-old girl.

The Camry was traveling "considerably under the posted 60 mph speed limit," according to a UHP release. Not realizing how slow the Camry was moving, the Expedition crashed into the rear end of the Camry, sending it into oncoming southbound traffic. The Camry then clipped a car and ended up against a fence in a ditch near 2000 West.

Neither of the other two vehicles' drivers were injured, but all four occupants of the Camry were taken to area hospitals. The 3-year-old girl was later life-flighted to Primary Children's while her 42-year-old mother was flown to IHC Hospital in Murray.

The exact nature of the injuries was not immediately available.

More information will be posted as it becomes available.
