RIVERTON — Two people were extricated from a vehicle after a crash at 13760 South 2700 West in Riverton, according to Unified Police Lt. Manfred Lassig.

The crash took place at around 7 p.m. A woman who had been trapped in the vehicle was flown from the scene in critical condition in a Life Flight helicopter, Lassig said.

A 9-year-old child who was also involved in the crash was in fair condition, Lassig said. The child also had been extracted from the car.

In the crash, an SUV was crossing from the west to east on 2700 West, Lassig said. The SUV did not yield the right-of-way to a Mercedes and T-boned the Mercedes, causing the car to roll over, he said.

The woman and the child were both in the Mercedes and are mother and child, Lassig said.

Unified Fire Authority rescue crews extracted the two people. A crash analysis team was investigating the circumstances of the crash as of Friday evening, Lassig said.

He did not provide information about any occupants of the SUV.
