WEST JORDAN — A man was critically injured Friday morning in a two-vehicle accident that closed Redwood Road for a few hours.

The accident occurred around 6 a.m. near 8400 S. Redwood Road, according to West Jordan police. A white truck was driving northbound when a red car pulled onto Redwood Road in front of the truck. The truck T-boned the car and rolled onto its side, police said.

The 26-year-old male driver of the car was critically injured in the collision and was transported to Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, police said. The 41-year-old male driver of the truck received minor injuries in the accident that didn't require medical attention.

Redwood Road was closed in both directions from 8200 South to 8700 South for several hours. It was reopened around 11:30 a.m.

Police are unsure if drugs or alcohol played a role in the accident and the investigation is ongoing.

More information will be posted as it becomes available.
