JENSEN, Uintah County — Four adults and one child were involved in a rollover crash at a popular off-road area in Uintah County Sunday, officials said.

Uintah County Sheriff's deputies responded to the crash about 1 p.m. approximately 2 miles north of U.S. Highway 40 in the Jensen area, according to a news release from the Uintah County Sheriff's Office.

A Chevy Blazer was traveling up a hill when the SUV's tires lost traction and the vehicle began to slide backward. The driver turned the steering wheel, causing the Blazer to leave the dirt road and roll once, the release said.

Four adults inside the vehicle were not wearing seat belts. One of them was flown to a local hospital as a precaution and was in stable condition with injuries that do not appear to be life-threatening.

A young child in the vehicle was restrained with a seat belt.

The other adults inside the Blazer were also evaluated at a hospital as a precaution.
