NORTH SALT LAKE — Two people are being treated for critical injuries after a tow truck rolled over Saturday evening.

North Salt Lake Police Sgt. Terry Fritz said officers received reports of the crash just before 6 p.m. The tow truck was driving near Eagleridge Drive and Valley View with an unoccupied vehicle on its flatbed. The truck was going too fast and was unable to make a turn when it rolled 1½ times and damaged a guardrail, Fritz said.

The driver had to be extricated from the truck and was flown in a helicopter to the hospital in critical condition. The passenger was transported in an ambulance to the hospital in critical but stable condition, according to Fritz.

Eagleridge Drive will be closed for a few hours for investigation, according to a Facebook post from North Salt Lake Police Department. City sweepers are currently cleaning up the scene.
