Three people were injured — one critically — when a car hit the divider wall on northbound Interstate 15 in Davis County, then veered into and became wedged under a semi-trailer.

The 2:05 p.m. Wednesday crash at about 700 South in Layton shut down all northbound lanes of the freeway for about an hour.

Troopers shut down freeway so a medical helicopter could land and take a male passenger from the Honda to McKay Dee Hospital. He was listed in critical condition, said Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Todd Royce.

The female driver and a female passenger in the Honda were taken to the hospital in ambulances with non-life threatening injuries, Royce added.

But by 2:54 p.m., all of the lanes reopened.

Wet road conditions contributed to the accident, the UHP said.
