TOOELE — A 35-year-old man was airlifted to a hospital in “extremely critical” condition and later died from the injuries he sustained in a vehicle crash on state Route 36 Monday morning, authorities said.

The man was identified by the Utah Highway Patrol Monday night as Christopher R. Bryson of Stansbury Park.

Emergency crews responded to a report of a crash on S.R. 36 near Canyon Road, just north of Tooele, shortly after 8:50 a.m., according to a UHP statement.

Troopers said a 60-year-old woman was driving a silver Chevy Colorado pickup truck south on S.R. 36 when the truck drifted across the center turn lane and into oncoming traffic. The truck hit Bryson's gold Subaru Impreza on the driver's side and both vehicles came to a rest in northbound lanes.

Bryson was flown by medical helicopter to University Hospital in Salt Lake City, where he later died.

The woman, whom troopers did not name, was transported by ambulance to a hospital in fair condition.

The crash remains under investigation, troopers said.
