SUV crashes down embankment in canyon

Salt Lake County Sheriff's deputies say their car was coming down the canyon when it drifted into the other lane near the S-curves.

The driver overcorrected, sending her car off the road and down the embankment. The car tumbled about 20 feet, striking several large boulders along the way.

Passing motorists stopped to help the driver and her passenger. Officers say both women were hurt, but none of the injuries are serious.
