SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah – A man was taken to a hospital in critical condition Saturday morning after his motorcycle slid underneath a vehicle during a crash on State Route 32.

According to information from the Utah Department of Public Safety, 24-year-old Jeremy J. Morgan of Park City was traveling southbound on SR-32 on a motorcycle when a vehicle traveling north made a left turn onto Browns Canyon Road in front of him.

The crash was in Summit County in the area near Rockport Reservoir and it occurred at about 10:54 a.m. The motorcycle slid under the vehicle, and Morgan was flown to a Salt Lake area hospital in critical condition.

There were no injuries to those inside the other vehicle, which appears to be a bus for some kind of school. Police said the driver was the sole occupant of the bus.

It was not clear if factors like excessive speed played a role in the crash or if either driver was at fault.

      Correct. But small consolation to his estate.

      That’s why I have blindingly bright driving lights mounted down low on the calipers.

    After having a metal plate put in my leg due to a car running me off the road, I just assume everybody is going to turn left in front of me when I’m on my motorcycle and it has saved my life several times.
