(KSL News) A warning this morning for people who drive along Highway 73 in Utah County.
Another car crash along that stretch of road near Eagle Mountian claims a life, prompting police to urge drivers to be more careful.
Around 7:30 last night, two cars collided head- on after one drifted into the wrong lane. The driver of one car was flown by helicopter to the University of Utah hospital where he remains in critical condition.
A female passenger is in stable condition at the American Fork hospital.
Two children were also in the crash. But luckily neither are hurt.
Lt. JoAnn Murphy/ Utah County Sheriff's Office: "We're starting to see more serious accidents out here. People passing on double yellow lines, passing into the areas where they shouldn't be. It is a risky strip of road."
Investigators are still trying to determine the exact cause of the accident.
