MURRAY — A four-car accident Thursday night in the intersection of 4500 South and State Street in Murray left one person in critical condition, authorities say.

The crash occurred at 10:28 p.m. and was caused by one of the cars running a red light, said Murray Police Sgt. Alishia Richmond. Investigators were not yet sure which car ran the red light.

A white SUV was traveling southbound through the intersection when a brown pickup truck headed east struck the white SUV on its passenger side, Richmond said. The white SUV was pushed into northbound traffic and hit a black Corvette stopped at a stoplight head-on, she said. The black Corvette was pushed into the bumper of a UTA SUV that was stopped directly behind it.

The impact flipped the white SUV onto its roof, where the driver was ejected, Richmond told The driver was transported to the hospital in critical condition. All cars involved were totaled except for the UTA SUV, which was able to drive away, she said.

The driver and passenger of the Corvette were also transported to the hospital with minor injuries, Richmond said. Investigators have found no signs of impairment in the crash so far, she added.

Additional information, such as the identities of the injured, are not immediately available.
